What is it about?
Specific sites in the epoxy backbone were pointed in a specific direction using external magnetic fields. Orienting was made possible by incorporating stable radical sites in the epoxy backbone. Alignment was inferred from the analysis of the four-angle polarized micro-spectroscopy. The electrical properties of the aligned polymer are predicted using molecular simulation.
