Thermoplastic Graphene Nanocomposites for transport Industry

In this project, thermoplastic graphene nanocomposites for automotive industry will be developed. Several nanocomposites, using different processing techniques will be obtained and characterized for their mechanical, thermo and photodegradative properties. A relation between the engineering properties of the compounds obtained and their morphology will be established. In particular, it is expected that a model that explained the influence of addition of graphene on the nanocomposite properties be established.
This project will be developed in collaboration with a private company
An internship at Mackgraph, World famous research Institute on Graphene in Sao Paulo, Brazil, https://www.mackenzie.br/mackgraphe/ may be considered.
