Laboratory 3. Polycondensation and Thermostable Polymers
Head of laboratory: Dr. Luminița MARIN
Description Research Groups Publications Projects Infrastructure

The research activity carried out within the laboratory is focused on the synthesis and characterization of heterocyclic/heterochain polymers and modified natural polymers with the aim to obtain advanced materials with high performance properties for specific applications.

The laboratory has expertise in:

    ·  Organic compounds functionalized with suitable building blocks for applying as sensors, actuators, solar cells, opto-electronic devices, membranes for gas separation

    ·  Flame retardant phosphorus-containing organic compounds with potential applications in increasing the flame resistance of traditional polymeric materials

      ·   Polymeric nanocomposite materials with special properties: electrical, optical and magnetic

      ·   Biopolymers and materials based thereon for bio-applications.


The principal concern of the laboratory is to transfer the accumulated skills and experience to the production of materials and devices based on polymers impacting the economic sector, namely materials for micro- and nanoelectronics, medicine, gas and liquid separation technologies, environmental protection, alternative energy resources, as well as flame resistance materials with improved properties.
