How will the efficient discovery of functional polymeric materials together with advanced manufacturing catalyze next generation commercial products?
Join Professors Michael Bortner of Virginia Tech and Timothy Long of Arizona State University as they highlight a case study using recent advances in versatile step-growth polymerization strategies and fundamental rheological measurements for the discovery of novel polyester compositions for additive manufacturing of controlled release structures. Polyesters continue to play a pervasive role in the creation of more sustainable polymeric materials with opportunities for tailored depolymerization and a circular materials economy. During this broadcast, you will gain appreciation for the topics and concepts captured in the ACS Polymer Chemistry: Principles and Practice short course held at Virginia Tech, focusing on a holistic training approach of “molecules to manufacturing.” Register now to learn how fundamental structure-property-processing-performance relationships are implemented to predict the printability of next-gen polymers for emerging technologies where part geometry brings added performance.
This ACS Webinar is moderated by Bryan Tweedy of the American Chemical Society and co-produced with ACS Professional Education.
