Polymer Chemistry

This course focuses on the synthesis, properties and applications of organic and inorganic polymers, dendrimers, and biopolymers. Topics will include the preparation, isolation, and characterization of polymeric materials. Conventional methods of polymerization used in industry, including free radical, living, and step growth will be examined in detail. Polymer applications will focus on the use of "smart materials" that possess useful conductive, optical, and self-healing properties.
