CHEM 4640 - Experimental Techniques in Macromolecular Chemistry


Laboratory techniques and experiments in synthesis, characterization, physical and mechanical properties of synthetic and natural macromolecules. Some commercial macromolecules as well as those synthesized in the laboratory are investigated. Techniques for predicting the engineering and physical properties of macromolecules from their molecular structures are introduced. Lectures provide a state-of-the-art description of synthesis and characterization methods. Meets with CHEM 6640; both courses cannot be taken for credit.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Corequisite: CHEM 4620 or equivalent.

When Offered: Spring term annually.
