Description Nowadays new applications and processing technologies place new and bigger demands on polymeric materials. Materials for 3D printing or electrically conductive polymer composites can serve as typical examples. In most cases these systems have a heterogeneous phase structure, which influences the end-use properties of the final material to a large extent. The aim of the work is a description of relationships between structure and properties of materials relevant for practical applications. Work activities include a preparation of polymeric materials and structural investigations by means of electron microscopy. Furthermore, mechanical and flow behaviour of prepared materials will be studied in detail.
