    Research Overview

  • Our research interests are concerned with thermophysical properties and reactions of polymeric, pharmaceutical and energetic materials. We study these materials by using a variety of analytical techniques including Infrared (IR) Spectroscopy, Mass Spectrometry (MS), Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA), Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), Thermomechanical Analysis (TMA), Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA), Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM), etc. Kinetic analysis of thermal data plays the key role in our work. We develop and apply our original kinetic methodology “Isoconversional Kinetic Analysis” also known as “Model-free Kinetics”.

    Polymers
    We focus on the processes of degradation, relaxation, crystallization, gelation, and polymerization. Our special focus is on the nanostructured polymeric systems. We use the TGA, MS, IR, DSC, and DMA to understand the effect of polymer chain nanoconfinement on the thermal behavior of polymers.

    Pharmaceuticals
    Amorphous pharmaceuticals are inherently unstable and tend to relax toward the stable crystalline state that ultimately results in the formation of crystalline drugs, which have significantly lower bioavailability. In order to evaluate stability of the amorphous drugs we probe their relaxation kinetics at temperatures significantly below the glass transition temperature. DSC is employed to detect the process of relaxation and crystallization occurring in aged amorphous samples.

    Energetics
    We use TGA and DSC to study the thermal decomposition kinetics of explosives and propellants. Obtaining reliable kinetic characteristics of decomposition is important for estimating thermal stability of energetic materials as well as for simulating the decomposition rates at the high temperatures associated with the combustion conditions. By combining DMA and MS, we have developed a novel analytical technique for studying mechanochemical effects in degradation of energetic materials such as nitrocellulose.
