Between 27 February and 10 March 2023 different colleagues from Uni Potsdam, PDWA and UPV/POLYMAT (namely Justin Koenig, Tobias Simon, Stephanie Schlappa, Anne Hartwig, Anika Krause, and Usue Aspiazu, with remote support of Marvin Muenzberg and Roland Haas) performed a PDW measuring campaign at the laboratories of our industrial partner Covestro in The Netherlands (Ron Peters, Roel Swaans, Rene van Oorshot, and Ronald Tennebroek).
The primary objective of the visit was to test PDW spectroscopy at Covestro’s R&D Lab for various syntheses that are significant to Covestro’s production portfolio. It marks the first instance where Covestro can monitor their synthesis processes inline, and the initial results look promising! The visit was conducted within the context of Case Study 1 “Polymers”.
