    One of the industries most dependent on fossil fuels is the polymer industry: over 99% of polymer production uses monomers derived from oil and gas. For this reason, polymers derived from biomass (biopolymers) are widely ...
  • Preparation of New Vitrimeric Materials Based on Glycidyl Vanillin-imines 

    Roig, Adrià; Petrauskaité, Aina; Ramis Juan, Xavier; Flor López, Sílvia de la; Serra Albet, Maria Àngels (2022)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The current exponential growth of the human population is associated with a degradation of the environment. In terms of lack of degradability and persistence in the environment, increasing attention is being paid to polymers. ...
  • Synthesis and characterization of new fully bio-based poly(acylhydrazone) vanillin vitrimers 

    Roig, Adrià; Petrauskaité, Aina; Flor López, Sílvia de la; Ramis Juan, Xavier; Serra Albet, Maria Àngels (2022)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In the present century the need to recycle thermosets to reach a sustainable environment has led a huge number of researchers to develop new reshapable networked polymers. In this scenario, vitrimers, materials able to ...
  • Stress-relaxing thermosets with easily regulated bond exchange kinetics 

    Konuray, Ali Osman; Moradi, Sasan; Fernández Francos, Xavier; Serra Albet, Maria Àngels; Ramis Juan, Xavier; Morancho Llena, José María (2022)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    We have carried out stress-relaxation experiments on poly(acrylate) and poly(thiol-ene) based thermosets prepared from in-house synthesized epoxy-acid adducts with acrylate (for the former) and ene functionalities (for the ...
  • Air ejector analysis in normal and abnormal modes, oriented to control purposes in aircraft systems
