An overview of the current state of art of the ultrasonic treatment technology applied to polymer melts is presented. The research and technological advancements of the ultrasonic treatment as applied to development of polymeric materials are discussed. An analysis of the technological progress shows that the mechanism of the effects of ultrasound on polymer melts is not fully understood at present. Such lack in fully understanding the mechanism could limit the use of this versatile technology in future applications. Based on the critical analysis of the research progress to date, some key issues for a deeper understanding of the chemical and physical effects of ultrasound on polymer melts are identified.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
