Cnr scientist among winners of ‘Polymers Award

Mariano Pracella (Cnr-Institute of Composite and Biomedical Materials), Md. Minhaz-Ul Haque (University of Pisa) and Vera Alvarez (University of Mar del Plata) have been awarded the 'Polymers' Best Paper 2014. Their paper, 'Functionalization, Compatibilization and Properties of Polyolefin Composites with Natural Fibers' received the 2nd prize in the category 'Articles'.

The awarded article focuses on analyzing the effect of functionalization and reactive processing on the morphological, thermal, rheological and mechanical properties of composites of isotactic polypropylene, polystyrene, poly(ethylene-vinyl acetate), with cellulose fibers, hemp or oat as natural fillers.

On an annual basis the 'Polymers' Best Paper Award recognizes outstanding papers that are related to polymer science and meet the aims, scope and high standards of the Polymers journal.
