Topics for theoretical discussions previous to the regular seminars (2017)

For each theoretical topic two students are assigned. One of them will be the presenter and should present answer to the theoretical question. The second one will be the challenger (opponent), who, during the presentation will find a gap in the explanations, discuss it with the presenter or provide second opinion. He/she should show constructive criticism. 
The theoretical discussions will start at 12h, before the regular seminars and will be in duration of 20 minutes.
Verónica Alvarez        16.01.2017
Present overview of results from one article of your choice, published in last six month in the area of emulsion polymerization. Explain your selection, as well.

Iñaki Emaldi          06.02.2017
Describe the mechanism leading to formation of branched chains and how the gel can be formed, and, explain why polymers that contain high gel fractions in general have lower molecular weight of the sol part.
Challenger (opponent): Nicholas Ballard

Elodie Limousin         13.02.2017
Define types of reactors and modes of operation in emulsion polymerization. How the selection of reactor type can influence the polymer properties?
Challenger (opponent):  Shaghayegh Hamzehlou
