Multifunctional Polymer Composites Doped with Novel 2D Nanoparticles for Advanced Applications (NANO2DAY)


Project no.: 777810

Project description:

NANO2DAY is aimed to develop novel multifunctional composites with outstanding electronic and mechanical properties by incorporation of novel MXene nanosheets into polymer matrixes. NANO2DAY is a first step in the rational design and systematic exploration of MXene-polymer nanocomposites for wearable electronics and advanced structural components for airspace applications. The overall aim of the project is to provide new materials and technologies with better performance, efficiency, quality, and cost savings in their end-user applications. The concept explored in the project accounts for finding and extending the application potential of advanced MXene-doped polymers and validation of their effectiveness compared to well-known carbon-based and particularly graphene-doped polymers.

Project funding:

The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation “Horizon 2020”

Project results:

Development of model-integrated technology methods for synthesis of various MXenes and manufacturing of MXene-polymer composites;
Experimental characterization of morphology, electronic, thermo-physical, and mechanical properties of MXenes and MXene/polymer composites;
Development of multi-scale modelling tools for assessment of operational properties of MXene-polymer composites;
Validation of MXene-polymer composites for use in practical applications by the development of lab-scale product prototypes demonstrating better performance and efficiency compared to common graphene- and other 2D nanoparticle-based composites or providing new applications.
