Invitation: Dissertation Defense by Tjaša Rijavec

We are pleased to announce the public presentation of doctoral dissertation by Tjaša Rijavec. You are cordially invited to join us at the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, Večna pot 113,

on Wednesday, 10th January 2024, at 2 pm in Lecture Room 1.

The title of her dissertation is “Characterisation and degradation of poly(vinyl chloride) in historical and contemporary objects”. In her work, Tjaša focused on developing characterisation methods for PVC objects, and use these to study the degradation of historical PVC. One notable aspect of her work was the creation of a damage function for PVC based on yellowing, enabling the prediction of the lifetime of transparent PVC objects from environmental variables (temperature and relative humidity) and material properties (plasticizer content and molar mass).

The presentation will be in English.
