The research will be carried out in the Molecular, Macromolecular Chemistry and Materials Laboratory at ESPCI Paris. This laboratory is known for conducting fundamental research inspired by and oriented towards industrial applications. The laboratory focuses on the design, synthesis and study of polymeric and composite materials organized at different scales.
The research project will focus on the study of structure/property relationships in vitrimers based on boronic ester chemistry. In particular, the flow properties, creep and solvent resistances will be quantified as a function of the structural parameters of the vitrimer networks (topology, functionality, composition) and of the dynamics of exchange of boronic ester links. Therefore, this research project will be at the interface of macromolecular chemistry and the physicochemistry of polymeric materials.
