Depolymerization of epoxy polymers at ambient conditions for carbon fiber recycling

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

My project uses performic acid as a solvent to degrade carbon fiber reinforced polymers. The epoxy resin degrades in solution, leaving behind intact carbon fiber weave that can be reused in new carbon fiber parts. I have been focused on degradation and mechanical testing. I also am studying the chemistry behind the degradation in order to figure out if the epoxy or performic acid can be collected and reused.
