Polymer engineering via molecular design: embedding electrical and optical properties into VITrimers

Project description

A step closer to recyclable plastics

Plastic is a valuable material that has a vital place in the economy. Eliminating waste, maximising value and using plastic efficiently should help protect our environment. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the VIT project will deal with vitrimers, new polymers that have the same mechanical properties as thermosets, while they can flow like thermoplastics at high temperatures. These polymers are designed to overcome the critical issues related to the use of composites and thermosets, materials of choice for structural applications, which cannot be recycled since, at high temperatures, they do not flow but degrade. VIT plans to endow vitrimers with highly desirable optical and electrical properties that will be maintained after recycling, satisfying the 'reuse-repair-recycle' paradigm of the circular economy.
