About the Project

The PhD position is offered by the MSCA-ITN project “NIPU - European Joint Doctorate”, an innovative training network on synthesis, characterization, structure and properties of novel non-isocyanate polyurethanes. NIPU-EJD is formed by a consortium of 15 international research-performing institutions, from both the academic and non-academic sectors. This consortium is collaborating in the achievement of common scientific/technological objectives and the creation of an innovative doctoral training programme for early-stage researchers (ESRs). Further information about this project can be found at nipu-ejd.eu

The objectives of this ESR project is to design biocomposites from novel waterborne or solvent-free functional NIPU polymers, where interface aspects and dispersion considerations are emphasized in order to achieve desired properties and processing characteristics. A special emphasis will be placed on waterborne formulations that can be aqueous stable and cured at room temperature from novel activated monomer/amine formulations and/or dual cure systems. Pickering emulsion in the presence of cellulose nanocrystals functionalized via grafting methods will be developed at UBx. The modification is to tailor the interface and control nanocellulose dispersion and biocomposites properties. The purpose of the modification is to tailor the interface and control nanocellulose dispersion in waterborne NIPU. The project is supported by the Academic secondment (12 months) at UBx (France) and the industrial secondment (3 months) at Perstorp (Sweden).

Supervision: The doctoral student will be supervised by Prof. Qi Zhou.
