Polymerschmelze
Collective intermolecular motions

T. Unruh, FAU

Researchers at FAU have proved the new theory that describes the motion of long-chain molecules in its liquid melt. The theory postulates that these melts not only are viscous like honey also on the molecular scale, but also have elastic properties like a rubber band. This so called viscoelastic property leads to coordinated motions of larger atom groups in the melt. The results from neutron scattering experiments contribute to the better understanding of transport of matter in liquids, which determines a number of technologically important processes such as the charging and discharging of batteries, electrolysis and chemical reactions, e.g. catalysis in the liquid phase.

Conclusions "Workshop on Neutron Science", Kurchatov Institute Gatchina, October 2013

In October the "Workshop on Neutron Science" took place at the Kurchatov Institute in Gatchina. The aim was to identify routes of cooperation between the Russian PNPI NRC center in Gatchina and german Neutron Centres. Representatives of the following institutions participated: PNPI NRC, JINR, FZJ, ILL, HZG, TUM and KFN. Read the conclusions here. [more] [archive]
