AbstractThe work is at the frontier of polymer chemical physics, materials’ processing and understanding of thermal conductivity of porous materials. It will involve the use of various approaches and techniques such as formulation, thermal conductivity measurements, rheology, optical and electron microscopies, characterisation of solutions, gels and porous materials. A certain part of work will be devoted to the basic modelling of thermal conductivity properties.
