Polymers are ubiquitous in their applications, from commodity materials in packaging and domestic appliances to high technology use in aerospace or automobiles; from high value small volume needs in the electronic industry to high volume sales as additives, for lubricants or drilling fluids for the oil industry. As a consequence, the manufacture of polymers is a very important sector of the chemical industry. The research interests of the polymers program in our group involves the study of the relationship between organization and motion of polymers at a molecular level and their function in properties of materials or structured fluids.
