CHEM 4620 - Introduction to Polymer Chemistry
This course will introduce synthetic and kinetic aspects of various polymerization reactions that have been employed to produce commodity and specialty plastic materials. Control and prediction of the molecular weight distribution for different polymerization mechanisms will be discussed along with various characterization techniques of molecular weight distribution and its relation to properties. Thermal/solution properties, chemical/physical properties, and uses of polymers also will be discussed.
Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: CHEM 2260 or permission of instructor.
