The innovation engine for new materials

Project 9: Phase Behavior Fundamentals of Silicone-Organic Hybrid Materials

Project 9 seeks to establish the guiding principles that control the compatibilization of silicones with organic polymers. Thrusts include the design of new materials and processes to create hybrid materials. This work will streamline the development of future research into materials with unique properties.
