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.

Why is it important?

The approach is essential in making polymers with enhanced electrical conductivity.

Perspectives

I am happy with this project because this is the first ~200K AUD Grant application I submitted that was approved. A subsequent application was also approved. Yey!
