New paper !! Molecular dynamics of fully biobased poly(butylene 2,5-furanoate) as revealed by broadband dielectric spectroscopy

I’m glad to announce that the collaboration with Michela Soccio at UniBo has allowed us to publish a new manuscript, just accepted in Polymer.

In this paper we present the molecular dynamics of the biobased polymer poly(butylene 2,5-furanoate) (PBF), by broadband dielectric spectroscopy. This material belongs to the family of furane-based polymers that are currently thought as a strong green alternative for terephtalate polyesters as PET. In our work, we have studied the PBF in its amorphous and semicrystalline states. The influence of crystallization was studied in both local and segmental relaxations. Also, we proposed that the PBF amorphous phase of the semicrystalline material was composed by different fractions, including a completely rigid one, with distinctly slower mobilities.
