CHEMĀ 4503. Introduction to Polymer Chemistry. 4 Credit Hours.

This course is typically offered in Fall.

Polymers are ubiquitous in many new (scaffolds for tissue engineering, hip replacements) and old (textiles, engineering resins, flocculants) applications, and are often used in composites with inorganic materials. In order to better understand the use and novel developments of polymers, this course will provide the fundamentals of synthesis, polymer structure/property relationships, and characterization methods. There is a laboratory component to the course that will cover molecular weight and phase transition methods.

Repeatability: This course may not be repeated for additional credits.
