Nanomaterials and Polymer Nanocomposites Laboratory (NPNL) covers the whole diamond of Synthesis-Processing-Structure-Property toward the development of multifunctional Polymer Nanocomposites. That is, NPNL carries out nanofiller synthesis and then develop and shape nanofiller/polymer nanocomposites using various polymer processing techniques to achieve the desired structure toward multifunctional polymer nanocomposites. Hence, our major research themes are as follows:
- Polymer Processing, Forming, and Characterization
- Multifunctional Polymer Nanocomposites with a Wide Range of Properties, i.e., Electrical, Electromagnetic, Dielectric, Gas Sensing, Thermal, Mechanical, Rheological, Tribological, and Optical.
- Conductive and Magnetic Nanomaterials Synthesis (Carbon Nanotube, Graphene, Graphene Nanoribbon, Metallic Nanowires and Metallic Nanoparticles)
- 3D Printing (Additive Manufacturing)
- Gas Sensors
- Plastic Recycling
- Aerogels and Hydrogels
