By loading a polymer with Graphene Oxide it changes and improves it’s properties. My project involves measuring the effects of this loading on a certain polymer.
The Honors Fellowship is important in that it gives me the resources to stay and work in my lab at William and Mary in order to study the effects of Graphene Oxide loading in polymers.
