Presentation: Role of Amorphous Phase in Crystalline Polymers
Yongfeng Men studied applied physics and graduated from Southeast University in 1995. He received his MSc degree from Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry (CIAC), Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1998, and obtained his doctor degree at the Physikalisches Institut der Albert-Ludwigs-Universitaet, Freiburg, Germany in 2001. In 2002, he joined the Polymer Research at BASF AG (now BASF SE) as a postDoc and Physicist. At the end of 2004, he accepted a professor position at CIAC. His main research interest focuses on the structuring process in polymeric systems (crystallization and deformation in polyolefins and film formation in polymeric latex dispersions) using scattering techniques. He serves as Editorial Advisory Board member of Macromolecules (2018-2020) and Polymer Crystallization (2018- ).
