UE Polymers 2

Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :


This course is divided in two parts covering selected aspects of polymer chemistry and physical chemistry. The chemistry part aims to help students better understand contemporary polymer science focusing on syntheses and materials properties of polymers. It covers copolymer synthesis, discussing control of copolymer composition and relevant recent research such as controlled radical polymerization, supramolecular polymers and bio-based polymers. The course will also provide detailed information for polymerization techniques and polymer characterization tools.

The UE is broken down as follows: YACH8U24 Polymers 2 chemistry (3 ects) / YACH8U29 Polymers 2 physico-chemistry ( 3ects)
