Course objectives
Laboratory practice from the chemistry of natural polymers offers to students to gain basic practical skills in chemistry of natural polymers in the field of their synthesis, isolation, determination and manufacturing which can used not only in the field of conservation-restoration. Students will be made familiar with advanced technique of fibre manufacturing - electrospinning.
Learning outcomes
Students will gain knowledge and especially practical skills of specific chemistry of natural polymers in the fields of their:
1) synthesis and manufacturing
2) identification
3) separation and determination
4) treatment and modification
