CHEM 411 - Synthesis and Characterization of Materials

(3 S.H.)

An in-depth study of polymer synthesis and characterization. The lecture portion of the course will focus on the controlled synthesis of polymeric materials including strategies for controlling polymer molecular weight, polymer architecture, and polymer microstructure. Characterization of polymers using spectroscopy, microscopy, and diffraction techniques will also be covered. The laboratory portion of the course will include synthesis of polymers using traditional addition and condensation polymerization techniques and using more recently developed methods including ROMP and ATRP. Characterization of polymers will include viscometry, thermal analysis, and spectroscopic methods. Prerequisites: CHEM 410 - Polymer Chemistry . Grade or P/NC. Offered alternate years.
