This subject is designed for postgraduate chemical engineering students who
wish to gain a general understanding of polymerization processes.
Particular emphasis is given to free-radical (co)polymerization processes,
their reactions, basic kinetics and industrial applications. The course
will also address polymer characterization techniques ranging from
chromatography to mass spectrometry. In addition, novel living methods of
free-radical polymerization will be discussed. The material may be
augmented with lab visits, demonstrations, and industry visits. A large
research assignment, e.g. a review of current literature material, including an oral
presentation is part of the assessment.
