Knowledge of basics of organic chemistry and chemistry of polymers.
- Course Enrolment Limitations
- The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
- Fields of study the course is directly associated with
- Course objectives
- At the end of the course students are supposed to be familiar with practical aspects of the chemistry of polymers:
1) Polymer syntheses in homogenous phase
2) Polymer syntheses in heterogenous phase
3) Methods of chemical modification of the polymers
4) Methods of polymer decomposition
5) Methods of polymer recyclation
- Learning outcomes
- Students will gain theoretical knowledge and especially practical skills in a chemistry of polymers in fields of: 1) synthesis in both homogenous and heterogenous phase 2) manufacturing and recycling 3) alteration and modification Students will also deepen their knowledge and skills of laboratory practice, synthesis and identification of organic compounds especially.
