Structure–Properties Relationship for Polyolefin Materials

Dr. Takumitsu Kida, who belongs to Polymer Chemistry Group(Prof. Takeshi Shiono)in Hiroshima University, mainly studies about the structure–properties relationships for polyolefin materials.

Recently, we have investigated the following topics:

  1. Influences of molecular weight and its distribution on morphology and mechanical properties for polyolefins.
  2. Microscopic deformation mechanism of polyolefins under a uniaxial stretching process using Raman spectroscopy.
  3. Synthesis and mechanical analysis of cyclic olefin copolymer (COC).
