Columbia Engineering Shows New Method to Make Advanced Polymer Nanocomposites

August 14 2017

Researchers at Columbia Engineering have demonstrated for the first time a new technique that takes its inspiration from the nacre of oyster shells. A new technique to make a composite material that has:

•Extraordinary mechanical properties
•Great strength
•Resilience

Sanat Kumar, an expert in polymer dynamics and self-assembly, said: “Essentially, we have created a one-step method to build a composite material that is significantly stronger than its host material. Our technique may improve the mechanical and potentially other physical properties of commercially relevant plastic materials, with applications in automobiles, protective coatings, and food/beverage packaging, things we use every day. And, looking further ahead, we may also be able to produce interesting electronic or optical properties of the nanocomposite materials.”
