Intercluster cSBO (SIM-Catalisti)
Nanocrystal-in-polymer composites have extensive potential to enhance nanocrystal properties and functionalize polymers. However, to make full use of these opportunities, the chemical nanocrystal/polymer compatibility is insufficiently controlled. NAPOLY aims at establishing design rules for the homogeneous dispersion of nanoparticles in polymers by setting up a library of surface ligand/polymer matrix combinations that is inspired by two application cases: fast bonding/debonding-on-command of polymer-based adhesives and the formation of nanoparticle-in-resin composites with bespoke emission spectrum.
