Sybren’s first paper was published in the journal Chemical Science. In his paper, entitled Molecular Control over Vitrimer-like Mechanics – Tuneable Dynamic Motifs based on the Hammett Equation, Sybren demonstrated how the physical-organic Hammett equation can be used to control the material properties of imine-based covalent adaptable networks. His results guide the way to durable and sustainable materials with unique and predictable properties from a bottom-up physical-organic approach.
Sybren’s project is part of the Vidi program of Maarten on 4D control over smart dynamic polymers, financed by NWO.
