This topic deals with the promotion of sustainable development through research on clean processes more respectful of human being and his environment. It includes the polymer production by clean processes but also the design/use of polymers as additives to develop clean processes in unconventional media and involving polymers self-assembly.
The IAM team has defined four priorities in this topic:
- processes in aqueous media
- processes in supercritical carbon dioxide media (scCO2 as alternative solvent)
- polymer self-assembly (e.g. micellar systems)
