CHEM 348
Polymer Chemistry Spring 2023
Division III

Class Details

From synthetic to natural macromolecules, we encounter polymers everywhere and every day. This course explores the multitude of synthetic techniques available and discusses how structure defines function. Topics include polymer types, concept of molecular weight, structure-property relationships and polymer synthesis methods including condensation and chain (anionic, cationic, radical) polymerizations. Fundamentals of composition and physical properties of polymers, and methods of characterization are also covered. Examples of polymer functionalization, self-assembly, and surface modification are also discussed.
