Description

Master's Programme in Materials Research is responsible for the course.

Module where the course belongs to:

  • MATR300 Advanced Studies in Materials Research
    Optional for:
    1. Study Track in Polymer Materials Chemistry

The course is available to students from other degree programmes.

General knowledge on polymer synthesis and characterization.

The course deals with the synthesis, properties and applications of functional polymers. Various polymer types, including supramolecular and nanostructured polymers, dendrimers and dendronized polymers, environmentally responsive polymers, polymers in pharmaceutics and cosmetics, will be discussed.

Recommended for Master degree students but also possible for later stages of studies

Period IV.

  • Introduction
  • Nanostructured polymers
  • Click Chemistry in Polymer Science
  • Polyelectrolytes
  • Liquid crystalline polymers
  • Dendrimers
  • Fluorinated polymers
  • Supramolecular polymers
  • Environmentally responsive polymers
  • Polymers in cosmetic care/pharmaceutics
  • Polymer Hybrids

Lecture slides will be made available.

Required:

The essay should be based on recent scientific article(s) on course topics, agreed with the lecturer
