The Thermoset Resin Formulators Association (TRFA) recently announced that Qi An of the University of Delaware is the winner of the fourth annual Excellence in Thermoset Polymer Research Award for the presentation entitled “Epoxy-Based Carbon Nanotube/Fiber Hybrid Composites: Nanoscale Hybridization via Electrophoresis.” The paper will be presented at the TRFA 2013 Annual Meeting, which will take place September 29-October 1 in Newport, R.I.

Because the competition for the award was especially close, the association is reportedly awarding a second place prize to Zhan H. Yang of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, for “Enhancing Mechanical Performance by Heterogeneity-Promoting Staged Fabrications.” Yang’s paper will also be presented at the meeting.
