Group of
 Polymers and

   The Group of Polymers and Polymerization Reactors (GPPR) operates at the Institute of Technological Development for the Chemical Industry (INTEC), that is in turn a joint institution depending on the Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (CONICET) and Universidad Nacional del Litoral (UNL).

   Since its start in 1981, the GPPP carries out teaching, research, and development on: a) the synthesis and characterization of polymers and polymeric colloids, and b) the mathematical modeling, simulation, optimization and control of polymerization processes.

   The main activities of the GPPR include:

1. Research and development on the synthesis and characterization of polymers and on the optimization and control of industrial processes

2. Teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels

3. Analytical Services and Technology Transfer to industry
The investigators of the GP have published over 150 scientific articles, and around 17 Ph.D. Theses. The Group exhibits collaborations with researchers from academia and industry in Argentina and abroad.
