 Department of Polymer Science & Catalysts

  General Information:-

The aim of this section is to provide an environment which facilitates researches in pure and applied polymer chemistry. This Group includes a team of polymer chemists, polymer engineers and chemists holding Ph.D. and Master degrees.
Experiments in polymer chemistry in laboratory scale are well performed using laboratory chemical and vessels as well as technical grade materials. Higher capacity vessels and reactors are specially designed and constructed in order to investigate and to prepare a higher quantity of products.
Finally, a wide variety of analytical instruments fulfil the characterisation of these products.
Our current researches involve a combination of industrially and academic projects for the development of polymer science and technology.
