Polymers and Biopolymers

This doctoral programme dates back to 1987, the year when doctoral programmes based on Spain’s recently enacted University Reform Law were launched. In 1994, the current programme was set up by combining the Plastics and Polymers and Structural Molecular Biology programmes, bringing together the Department’s most established research activities in two optional subject areas: polymers and biopolymers.


The Spanish Ministry of Education recognised the excellence of the programme in 2004 by granting it a quality award (MCD2004-00290). Since then, the quality award has been renewed without interruption following regular audits, and in 2011, the programme was granted a Pathway to Excellence award (MEE2011-0310), which remained in effect until 2013, when the award programme ended. The programme was associated with the UPC master’s degree in Polymers and Biopolymers and is now linked to the master’s degree in Chemical Engineering – Smart Chemical Factories (Smart Polymer Engineering, specialisation track).

The programme harnesses the research experience that the UPC has gained in the field of polymers and biopolymers over more than 40 years of continuous activity. This experience currently underpins the work of more than half a dozen recognised groups devoted exclusively to research in this field, all of which participate in the National RDI Programme, mainly in the materials area.

The doctoral programme is aimed at the polymer materials sector, which is one of the most active in the chemical industry. Polymer production continues to grow, as they replace other kinds of materials and enable technological innovations that are impossible with other materials. It is important to note that polymer materials have a special impact on science, and specifically, on the creation of advanced materials for use in a wide range of sectors from biomedicine to the electronics industry. Producing specialists capable of leading R&D projects in polymer technology is essential for competitive development.

The existence of national and international doctoral programmes in this field with similar characteristics speaks to the value and importance of this programme at the current time. In the USA, there are countless doctoral programmes that focus on polymer science and engineering. In Europe, many prestigious institutions (including the University of Manchester, University of Bayreuth, Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, and University of Lyon) offer doctoral degrees in polymers and biopolymers, generally linked to master’s degrees in the same field. Doctoral programmes in this field are also starting to take off at technology-oriented universities in Asia. Despite a high concentration of industrial activity in this sector in Catalonia, this doctoral programme is the only one focusing on polymers that is offered in the region.


The way the programme is focused facilitates the achievement of a series of objectives, enabling students to develop expertise in the field by providing:

a) Systematic, streamlined and up-to-date knowledge of the scientific and technological foundations of polymers and biopolymers.

b) Knowledge and use of bibliographic sources as required to justify, underpin and support research on topics related to polymers and biopolymers.

c) Experimental knowledge of the main methodologies applied in the manufacture, characterisation and evaluation of properties of polymers and biopolymers.

d) Scientific and technological criteria for planning, implementing and directing a basic or applied research project on any topic in the field of specialisation.

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is three years, counted from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is five years, counting from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. For calculating these periods, the date of admission is considered to be the date of the first enrolment for tutorials, and the date of submission the moment in which the Doctoral School officially deposits the doctoral thesis.

For full-time doctoral candidates, the minimum period of study is two years, counted from the date of an applicant's admission to the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited; for part-time doctoral candidates it is four years. When there are justified grounds for doing so, and the thesis supervisor and academic tutor have given their authorisation, doctoral candidates may request that the academic committee of their doctoral programme exempt them from the minimum period of study requirement.

The calculation of periods of study will not include periods of absence due to illness, pregnancy or any other reason provided for in the regulations in force. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which, where appropriate, must inform the Doctoral School. Doctoral candidates may also temporarily withdraw from the programme for up to one year, and this period may be extended for an additional year. Doctoral candidates who wish to interrupt their studies must submit a justified request to the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which will decide whether or not to approve the request. Each programme will establish conditions for readmission to doctoral studies.

Extension
If full-time doctoral candidates have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, the academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year. In exceptional circumstances, a further one-year extension may be granted, subject to the conditions established by the corresponding doctoral programme. In the case of part-time doctoral candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

Enrollment aid

The programme offers no specific assistance for enrolment. In unique cases, research groups may offer assistance.

Admission criteria and merits assessment

Weighting of admission criteria:

1. Applicant’s curriculum vitae: Type of training and marks awarded, as well as research and professional experience (70%).
2. Personal contact through online or face-to-face interviews (15%).
3. English language skills (15%)

Admissions body
The programme has an academic committee that assesses student applications. Each month, the committee reviews applications submitted through the pre-enrolment application.

The doctoral programme has a specific form for doctoral students to indicate their scientific and technical interests. Based on this information, and taking into account the needs and capacity of research groups, the academic committee channels the applications accepted so that tutors and thesis supervisors can be assigned.

If the academic committee deems that additional training is required for an applicant to be admitted, it determines what bridging courses the student will be required to take to ensure that they have the necessary skills, knowledge and abilities (up to a maximum of 60 ECTS credits).

Training complements

The academic committee for the doctoral programme may require that students pass specific bridging courses. Additional training requirements will be determined based on each student's academic background. In such cases, the committee will keep track of the bridging courses completed and establish appropriate criteria to limit their duration.

Bridging courses may provide research or cross-disciplinary training, but in no case may doctoral students be required to enrol for 60 or more ECTS credits.

Students will complete any additional training within the framework of the master's degree in Chemical Engineering offered by the Barcelona East School of Engineering (EEBE-UPC) or by taking cross-disciplinary training courses organised by the UPC. This master's degree includes a specialisation module in Smart Polymer Engineering (SPE), which offers students the possibility of acquiring a specialisation in which the Department has a solid track record in both teaching and research.

Based on each applicant's background and the gaps in their training, bridging courses are selected from among subjects taught on the master's degree in Chemical Engineering. Applicants are informed of the bridging courses they will be required to take prior to the enrolment process. At the same time, they are also provided with information on the frequency with which courses are offered and the pertinence of their content.

The following points apply to any bridging courses that doctoral students may be required to take:

1. Bridging courses are subjects of the specified master's degree and must be administratively linked to the student’s enrolment in the doctoral degree. They may be taken in one or two semesters, depending on the student’s previous training and the frequency with which they are offered.

2. Students who do not successfully complete required bridging courses will be automatically excluded from the programme.

Monitoring and evaluation of the doctoral student

Procedure for the preparation and defense of the research plan

Doctoral candidates must submit a research plan, which will be included in their doctoral student activity report, before the end of the first year. The plan may be improved over the course of the doctoral degree. It must be endorsed by the tutor and the supervisor, and it must include the method that is to be followed and the aims of the research.

At least one of these annual assessments will include a public presentation and defence of the research plan and work done before a committee composed of three doctoral degree holders, which will be conducted in the manner determined by each academic committee. The examination committee awards a Pass or Fail mark. A Pass mark is a prerequisite for continuing on the doctoral programme. Doctoral candidates awarded a Fail mark must submit a new research plan for assessment by the academic committee of the doctoral programme within six months.

The committee assesses the research plan every year, in addition to all of the other activities in the doctoral student activity report. Doctoral candidates who are awarded two consecutive Fail marks for the research plan will be obliged to definitely withdraw from the programme.

If they change the subject of their thesis, they must submit a new research plan.

Procedure for assignment of tutor and thesis director

The academic committee of the doctoral programme assigns a thesis supervisor to each doctoral candidate when they are admitted or enrol for the first time, taking account of the thesis supervision commitment referred to in the admission decision.

The thesis supervisor will ensure that training activities carried out by the doctoral candidate are coherent and suitable, and that the topic of the candidate’s doctoral thesis will have an impact and make a novel contribution to knowledge in the relevant field. The thesis supervisor will also guide the doctoral candidate in planning the thesis and, if necessary, tailoring it to any other projects or activities undertaken. The thesis supervisor will generally be a UPC professor or researcher who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience. This includes PhD-holding staff at associated schools (as determined by the Governing Council) and UPC-affiliated research institutes (in accordance with corresponding collaboration and affiliation agreements). When thesis supervisors are UPC staff members, they also act as the doctoral candidate’s tutor.

PhD holders who do not meet these criteria (as a result of their contractual relationship or the nature of the institution to which they are attached) must be approved by the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee in order to participate in a doctoral programme as researchers with documented research experience.

The academic committee of the doctoral programme may approve the appointment of a PhD-holding expert who is not a UPC staff member as a candidate’s thesis supervisor. In such cases, the prior authorisation of the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee is required. A UPC staff member who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience must also be proposed to act as a co-supervisor, or as the doctoral candidate’s tutor if one has not been assigned.

A thesis supervisor may step down from this role if there are justified reasons (recognised as valid by the committee) for doing so. If this occurs, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will assign the doctoral candidate a new thesis supervisor.

Provided there are justified reasons for doing so, and after hearing any relevant input from the doctoral candidate, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may assign a new thesis supervisor at any time during the period of doctoral study.

If there are academic reasons for doing so (an interdisciplinary topic, joint or international programmes, etc.) and the academic committee of the programme gives its approval, an additional thesis supervisor may be assigned. Supervisors and co-supervisors have the same responsibilities and academic recognition.

The maximum number of supervisors of a doctoral thesis is two: a supervisor and a co-supervisor.

For theses carried out under a cotutelle agreement or as part of an Industrial Doctorate, if necessary and if the agreement foresees it this maximum number of supervisors may not apply. This notwithstanding, the maximum number of supervisors belonging to the UPC is two.

More information at the PhD theses section

Permanence

The academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year for full-time doctoral candidates who have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, in the terms outlined in the Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. In the case of part-time candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

International Mention

The doctoral degree certificate may include International Doctorate mention. In this case, the doctoral candidate must meet the following requirements:

a) During the period of study leading to the award of the doctoral degree, the doctoral candidate must have spent at least three months at a respected higher education institution or research centre outside Spain to complete courses or do research work. The stays and activities carried out must be endorsed by the thesis supervisor and authorised by the academic committee of the programme. The candidate must provide a certifying document issued by the person responsible for the research group of the body or bodies where the stay or activity was completed. This information will be added to the doctoral student’s activity report.
b) Part of the thesis (at least the summary and conclusions) must be written and presented in one of the languages commonly used for science communication in the relevant field of knowledge, which must not be an official language of Spain. This rule does not apply to stays and reports in Spanish or to experts from Spanish-speaking countries.
c) At least two PhD-holding experts belonging to a higher education institution or research centre outside Spain must have issued officially certified reports on the thesis.
d) The thesis examination committee must have included at least one PhD-holding expert from a higher education or research institution outside Spain who was not responsible for the candidate’s stay abroad (point a) above).
e) The thesis defence must have taken place on UPC premises or, in the case of joint programmes, at the location specified in the collaboration agreement.

    Thesis abstract: Depletion of natural resources and non-renewable energy sources has recently accelerated due to the development of globalized economy and industrialization. During the last years, the scientific community has devoted much of its efforts to developing and improving renewable energy sources. In this context, electrochemical capacitors, or supercapacitors, have received great interest owing to their properties and potential applications. Supercapacitors and their different components constitute the main line of work of the present thesis. More specifically the thesis investigates the use of hydrogels in various distinct functions. The work done in the thesis has been developed both experimentally and corroborated by theoretical studies based on quantum mechanics and molecular dynamics.The main body of the thesis is divided into three parts. The first one includes the synthesis and characterization of a hydrogel derived from an unsaturated polyesteramide as a solid electrolyte in a supercapacitor. This part consists of the electrochemical characterization of the hydrogel obtained, evaluating the performance of the hydrogel when acting as a solid electrolyte, as well as a study of ion diffusion through the hydrogel carried out with molecular dynamics. These studies allow to obtain the optimal conditions for the synthesis and use of this hydrogel.The second part is based on the preparation and characterization of a multilayer system as an electrode in a supercapacitor. More specifically, it covers the preparation of a multilayer system consisting of PVA and the conductive polymer PEDOT, prepared by a layer-by-layer process. The chapter also consists of a theoretical study of quantum mechanics in which the movement and changes of a PEDOT monolayer are studied, and allows to elucidate the mechanisms and electronic properties that had not been fully understood at the experimental level.Finally, the third and last part incorporates the preparation of a multifunctional system consisting entirely of hydrogels. The chapter begins by detailing the preparation of an electrode of a supercapacitor based on a PEDOT hydrogel and alginate. After its characterization as an electrode, other functionalities that can be given to this system are explored. Among them, a reusable and recyclable pressure sensor is prepared to detect pressure changes linearly and with great sensitivity, as well as a controlled drug release system, in particular a controlled release by electrical stimulation of curcumin.

    Thesis abstract: In the last decades, polymeric biomaterials, due to their advanced physical and mechanical properties, have been used in a vast variety of surgical and pharmaceutical applications. In this thesis, a study on crystallinity, properties, and degradability ofpoly-4-hydroxybutyrate (P4HB), commercially marketed as MonoMax® by B. Braun Surgical S.A.U. as an absorbable monofilament suture, and related polyesters is presented. ·Part of this work has been executed under the collaborative research project established between PSEP (Polímeros Sintéticos. Estructura y Propieda s) research group of Universitat Politécnica de Catalunya and B. Braun Surgical S.A.U. (Center of Excellence far Closur :Technologies) with the principal purpose of evolving ahd investigating polymeric systems with specific biomedical ápplications.This study covers different tapies related to P4HB such as (a) the physical, chemical, thermal and mechanical characterization;(b) the study of the crystallization kinetics; (c) the study of the degradation behavior of P4HB; and (d) the production of nanofibers by the electrospinning technique. Moreover, the work includes a study on blends of two different polyesters: PGA/PCL blends also produced employing the electrospinning technique and biphasic PLA/PA blends.Crystallization was studied under both isothermal and non-isothermal conditions using optical microscopy and differential scanning calorimetry. Furthermore, supplementary experiments performed in a synchrotron radiation facility provided us with further information about the lamellae morphology, crystal structure, and molecular orientation.Hydrolytic and enzymatic degradation of different matrices of P4HB was carried out in different buffered media. The hydrolytic degradation has been studied considerírig media of different pH values and temperatures. Enzymatic degradation has also been evatu ated at physiotogical conditions using two different lipases. The hydrolytic degradation mechanism differs from the enzymatic, where bulk degradation and a random éháin scission are characteristic of samples exposed to hydrolytic media, whereas surface erosion and successive removal of monomer units are charac!eristlc of samples exposed to enzymatic media. Far annealed fibers, small-angle X-ray diffraction studies revealed a supramolecular structure with two different types of !amellar stacks. The spherulitic morphology of the enzymatically degraded films was highlighted by the elimination of the amorphous regions.Nanofibers of PGA/PCL and P4HB were preparad using the electrospinning technique. The PGA/PCL nanofibers were also loaded with pharmacological drugs and Lised as a reinforcing agent of biodegradable polymer matrices. On the other hand, the biologicat performance of P4HB nanofibers was achieved with the incorporation of fibroblast growth factors. Far this purpose, wound healing assay for two different cell lines (e.g., epithelial and fibroblast) were studied.Finally, a study on the blends of PLA and Polyamide 6,1O was carried out to investigate the confinement effect of neighboring polymer domains on the phase separation and the structure and the influence of the disperse phase of polyamide in promotingPLA crystallization.

    Thesis abstract: Nowadays. both electronic and microelectronic circuits have great relevance and wide application in our daily lives and are increasingly being used with higher powers and frequencies. One of the main problems faced by their manufacturers is thedissipation of heat generated during their operation. since it reduces the useful life of these devices. One of the useful options that can help dissipate the generated heat is the lnsulated Metal Substrate (IMS). The IMS consists of three layers: copper foil, a dielectric layer, and a metallic substrate. The thermal conductivity of the material that constitutes the dielectric layer will be of vital importance when it comes to dissipating the heat generated. The most widely used system as a dielectric layer for IMS is an epoxy resin matrix with a crosslinking agent and a filler. As the thermal conductivity of the epoxy resin is low, it is essential to use a filler with high thermal conductivity that allows efficient dissipation of the generated heat. Therefore, in this thesis, the preparation of samples based on epoxy resins with boron nitride (BN) charges is studied. The effect of the BN particle size, the effect of the crosslinking agent used, the curing kinetics, the shape of the BN particles, the application of pressure on the material during the curing process, and the role of densification are analyzed. lt is found that the thenmal conductivity of epoxy-BN composites increases with increasing BN particle size for a given content of filler, and that BN agglomerates provide a higher thermal conductivity in comparison with the same size platelets, which is attributed to there being fewer interfaces with the epoxy matrix for the agglomerates. The epoxy-thiol system provides a higher thermal conductivity than the epoxy-Jeffamine system, which is attributed to a Lewis acid-base interaction. In the cure kinetics experiments, it was observed that the cure reaction of the epoxy-thiol composites was retarded with increasing the BN content for all particles (platelets or agglomerates). For the epoxy-Jeffamine system, it was observed that the cure reaction is independent of BN particle content, which is also correlated with the thermal conductivity measurements. The heat of reaction (L':.Hee) and the glass transition temperature of the fully cured system, Tgm, are independent of BN particle content, size and shape for both epoxy-thiol and epoxy-Jeffamine. On the other hand, the thermal conductivity increases by applying pressure for both epoxy-thiol and epoxy-Jeffamine systems in comparison with the composites cured at ambient pressure; the enhancement for the epoxy-Jeffamine system is greater. lt is revealed that the mechanisms of the enhancement of the thermal conductivity by application of pressure for each system are different. And finally, densification is shown to be a way of increasing the thermal conductivity; it is also shown to be a reversible effect.

    Thesis abstract: Current market trend is moving to miniaturized specimens, especially in the biomedical field seeking high effective and less invasive treatrnent. Ultrasound (US) micromolding is a new technique developed to the aim of producing microsized pieces based on the use of ultrasound waves as a heating source. This heating method is highly precise and can lead to produce microsized pieces with high energy and material efficiencies by using short cycling times compared to other conventional techniques.This PhD work explores further possibilities of ultrasound micromolding to the production of polymers with added value. The work is divided in two main blocks: the production of micropieces based on biodegradable polymers focused on biomedical applications and the application of this technique as a new method to obtain nanocomposites with a homogenous dispersion ofthe reinforcing material.Polylactide (PLA) was selected as polymer matrix in the first block to produce drug loaded pieces and scaffolds with antibacterial activity or increased osteoconductivity by the incorporation of hydroxyapatite (HAp). Chlorhexidine (CHX) and triclosan (TCS), selected as representative bactericide agents, were successfully loaded with a homogenous distribution into the polymer matrix Drugs were slowly released from micropieces and presented clear bactericide and bacteriostatic effect against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Microporous scaffolds have been produced from the subsequent leaching of incorporated salts. By using NaCI cavitation problems could be avoided but pores interconnections were insufficient anda small amount of water soluble polymer (i.e. polyethylene glycol) was required in order to improve the leaching process. Final scaffolds showed enhanced cell proliferation compared to non-porous PLA PLNHAp scaffolds with a porosity degree close to 35% could be achieved with relatively good mechanical properties. lncorporation of HAp increased the thermal stability, hydrophilicity and cell proliferation with respect to neat PLA specimens.Ultrasound waves are usuallycombined with the conventional method to produce nanocomposite (i.e. solution intercalation and melt mixing) to avoid nanoparticles aggregation and improve their distribution within the polymer matrix Hence the second block ofthis PhD work studies the use of ultrasound micromolding technology in nanocomposites production. To this end, Polycaprolactone and polyamide 12 were selected as polymer matrices whereas multi-walled carbon nanotubes(MWCNT) and Nanofil 757 (a non-organo modified clay) were chosen as reinforcing agent. Both neat polymers and their nanocom posites were successfully micromolded with minimal polymer degradation under optimal molding condition (amplitude, force and time). US micromolding technique was revealed to be efficient in getting fully exfoliated nanocomposites even when Nanofil 757 was selected. Moreover, the influence of both, MWCNTand Nanofil 757, on crystallization behaviorand morphology were systematically studied by time resolved synchrotron experiments. Crystalline polymorphic transitions of nylon 12 were also evaluated through analyses of real time synchrotron.A final chapter of this thesis is devoted to the study of structural transitions of nylons 12 9, 8 9, 4 9, 4 5 and copolymers derived from 1,4-diam inobutane and different ratios of glutaric and azelaic acids (nylon 4, 5+9) in order to achieve deeper knowledge on the series of even-odd polyam ides. These polyamides show different crystalline structure and structural transitions compared to the conventional polyamides, which root cause is still unclear.

Quality

The Validation, Monitoring, Modification and Accreditation Framework (VSMA Framework) for official degrees ties the quality assurance processes (validation, monitoring, modification and accreditation) carried out over the lifetime of a course to two objectives—the goal of establishing coherent links between these processes, and that of achieving greater efficiency in their management—all with the overarching aim of improving programmes.
