This course will explore exciting macomolecular chemistry in a range of selected cutting edge research fields. The course is given by four experts in their respective fields and has segments on reversible additional fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization, atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP), Ziegler-Natta Polymerization as well as the application of well-defined polymers for drug delivery and biomedical applications. The course is designed as an interactive course between students and lecturer. The students are actively engaged in judging current scientific research papers as well as developing new research strategies. As part of this course, students are expected to undertake a (theoretical) research project in the field of polymer science and technology. This course is highly recommended for students undertaking research in the polymer science at a post-graduate level.
