Polymer Chemistry Unit

Application of nuclear techniques in the polymer synthesis and characterization, synthesis of polymers used in nuclear applications, synthesis of radiation-resistive polymers, providing a contribution to the related studies in the country and following the worldwide developments in this field with a defined strategy are among the mission of polymer chemistry unit. By carrying out the laboratory studies related to polymers by considering the country requirements in the direction of specified strategy, we try to provide contribution to other studies execute in the country about this subject, and to pioneer and follow the development around the world.

In the Polymer Chemistry unit, the following projects are executing:

  • The synthesis of boron containing polymer carrier compounds for Boron Neutron Capture Therapy and testing in laboratory conditions.
  • Decreasing the environmental effects of some heavy metal compounds in aqueous medium by adsorption on the polymer based jel and membrane systems.
