CENTER OF NANO STRUCTURED POLYMERS

Center of nano structured polymers

R & D laboratories of the Center are fully equipped for the synthesis of special types of polymer binders, surface modifiers of nanostructures, and for the basic evaluation of nanomaterials. One of the Center's main priorities is to respond flexibly to the customer requirements and also to transfer the latest scientific knowledge into practice to enhance the product quality. The Center actively supports the professional activities of high school students, university students and Ph.D. students.

Key research and development activities are:
