1 NaPolyNet Reports on WP2 activities Prof. Rumiana Kotsilkova P2: CLPCM-BAS NaPolyNet GA meeting, May 2009, Athens, Greece

2 CONTENTS NaPolyNet Questionnaire Reports on D2.1 and D2.2 EOL activities coming soon Work on WP2 for the 2 nd year

3 NAPOLYNET QUESTIONNAIRE to identify and map the advanced techniques, methodologies and competences for polymer nanomaterials (PNMs) characterization at national, regional and European level 1. Name 2. Position 3. Organization/Institution/Company (address for contacts): 4. Main research topics 5. Competences on characterization of polymer nanomaterials 6. Which techniques for polymer nanomaterials characterization are used in your organization and how often? 7. Methodologies in use in your field of polymer nanomaterials characterization. 8. Need of complete characterization of PNMs in your field 9. Is there a need of standard reference materials and the standard procedures for characterization of polymer nanomaterials in your field? 10. Which test procedures should be standardized, now or later? WHAT IS DONE ? 1. Questionnaire was prepared and sent to 16 partners of the Consortium for dissemination in their countries (10 EU Member States). 2. Answers of the Questionnaire was collected from 15 Partners of the Consortium and 4 Partners outside the Consortium. 3. Analysis of the Questionnaires is presented in D2.1 and D2.2 Reports.

4 D 2.1. Reports of the industrial needs by the Industrial Partners of the Consortium The mapping includes 5 Industrial Partners of the Consortium coming from 5 EU countries: Italy, Spain, Czech Republic; France, and Netherlands. The following industries are presented in the D2.1.Report: 1) Polymer membranes and membrane contactors (P9:GVS, Italy); 2) Nanomaterials for packaging applications (P12: Nanobiomatters, Spain); 3) Nano-based systems for textiles (P15: INOTEX, Czech Republic); 4) Instrumentation (P7: SOPRA, France); (P11: SCITE, Netherlands)

5 Analysis of Industrial Needs on Nanostructured Materials Characterization Polymer membranes – Find correlation between polymers used to produce membranes and the structure, the morphology, and the performance of resulting membranes; Packaging applications – Correlation between formulation/fabrication/ conformation and final properties of the nanocomposite. Certification of final products according to the normatives (food contact, mechanical performance, flame retardance); Textiles – Technological implementations of nano-based systems for wet processing and functionalization of textiles. Instrumentation: 1) The correlation between the manufacturing conditions of the surface and the resulting characteristics is very important; 2) Techniques for monitoring of the impact of the realistic conditions during processing and use of polymer nanostructured materials on the structure and morphology.

6 for complete In the frame of the NaPolyNet project the Academic Partners may open their labs as EOL-host to answer the needs of Industrial Partners for complete characterization of nanostructured polymer materials, as follows: 1) Find correlation between processing-structure-properties for design nanostructured polymers and nanocomposites; 2) Solve some technological problems for implementations of nano-based systems for textiles; 2) Solve some technological problems for implementations of nano-based systems for textiles; 3) Contribute with original methodologies and unique equipments. 3) Contribute with original methodologies and unique equipments. CONCLUSIONS:
