MSE-437 / 3 credits

Teacher: Klok Harm-Anton

Language: English


Summary

Know modern methods of polymer synthesis. Understand how parameters, which determine polymer structure and properties, such as molecular weight, molecular weight distribution, topology, microstructure can be controlled by proper choice of polymerization method and optimization of reaction condition
