101 Series  Webinar -  June 1, 2017


Join us for a webinar to learn about one of the cutting-edge applications of nanoscientific research:

Rubber Elastomers 101

 Join us for a series of lectures featuring materials sciences expert Prof. Rigoberto Advincula of Case Western Reserve University! Our new series with Prof. Advincula aims to a beginner's friendly first foray into a new materials science field each month. By exploring the basics and fundamental science of each featured field, we hope to expand your appreciation for the research and engineering helping us craft the world of tomorrow by improving the one we live in today.

Our next entry in this series is focused on rubber elastomers. Elastomers in general are polymers that exhibit viscosity and elasticity as well as very weak intermolecular forces. They are also known to have a low stiffness and high failure strain when compared with other materials. Some of the most popular uses of rubber elastomers include applications as seals, adhesives, and molded parts requiring flexibility.

Join us as Prof. Advincula surveys the field of rubber elastomer research and development and gives us a tour on how we work with these materials today, characterize their properties, and usher in next-generation technologies via the latest techniques in chemical, electrical, materials, and mechanical engineering.

Presented by Prof. Rigoberto Advincula
Macromolecular Science & Engineering, Case Western Reserve University
