Nina Kantor-Malujdy, a PhD student studying materials engineering at the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin, is part of the innovative and exciting GREEN-MAP project.
Nina's research is focused on solvolysis of adipate-, succinate-, and furanoate-based products, using deep eutectic solvents and enzymes (CALB) to recover monomers and characterize derived products using a range of advanced techniques, including FT-IR, GPC-SEC, and NMR. Her work is paving the way for more sustainable and environmentally friendly manufacturing processes that will help shape the future of materials engineering.
Moreover, Nina is working on the diacrylation of the product after glycolysis. She is also creating foils from materials after diacrylation using a UV curing system, which will be used for various applications, such as packaging materials.
Nina's work puts an impact on sustainable and eco-friendly materials engineering solutions. Her goal is for her work to have a positive impact on the environment.
