Khare Wins First Place in ACS-POLY Poster Competition
Ketan Khare, a doctoral student in the Department of Chemical Engineering, won first place in the poster competition at the Polymer Composites and High Performance Materials Workshop in July 2013 in Santa Rosa, California. The American Chemical Society (ACS) Division of Polymer Chemistry organized the workshop. Ketan Khare's poster was titled "Effect of the chemical functionalization of carbon nanotubes on the thermo-mechanical properties of cross-linked epoxy-carbon nanotube nanocomposites." Dr. Rajesh Khare, an associate professor of chemical engineering, advises Ketan Khare.
Ketan Khare also co-presented a session at the conference with Dr. Rajesh Khare titled "Importance of Matrix–Filler Interactions in Cross-linked Epoxy-Carbon Nanotube Composites: A Molecular Simulation Investigation."
