Research groups from chemistry and macromolecular science and engineering issue first report on collaborative work

The Pentzer Research Group from the Department of Chemistry and the Advincula Research Group from the Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering published the first report of an electric motor based on plastic composites.

Published in ACS Applied Energy Materials, “Plastic Metal-Free Electric Motor by 3-D Printing of Graphene-Polyamide Powder” details their work with a 3-D-printed plastic motor made of graphene composite nylon powders and based on the selective laser sintering method. The paper was featured on the cover page of the new journal.
