Research Summary

Our research efforts are focused on the study of phase equilibria and diffusion behavior in polymer-solvent systems. We concentrate on the development of improved measurement techniques and prediction methods. We attempt to use the theories of molecular behavior and statistical thermodynamics to provide the practicing engineer with the most efficient and accurate methods to deal with important, recurring problems involving phase equilibria and diffusion. In order to evaluate current theories and pro-duce better models, accurate and well-documented experimental data are required. Read More
