Team leader: Kateryna FATYEYEVA, Lecturer

Research activity of MPBM team concerns the design and characterization of the polymer materials with controlled transport properties. The permeation and sorption properties of small molecules (water, has, hydrocarbons) through the polymer material, the barrier properties and material selectivity are studied in detail. The experimental kinetic curves are fitted by the mathematical models. The polymer structure and morphology are correlated with functional properties and that for different materials – from the very permeable (selective membranes with high flux) up to barrier materials.
