MSE-431 / 3 crédits

Enseignant: Klok-Lermann Eva

Langue: Anglais


Summary

The student has a basic understanding of the physical and physicochemical principles which result from the chainlike structure of synthetic macromolecules. The student can predict major characteristics of a polymer from its chemical structure and molecular architecture.

Content

Keywords

dilute and concentrated solutions

glass transition

rubber elasticity

viscoelastic behaviour

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

General chemistry, Inorganic chemistry, organic and polymer chemistry

Important concepts to start the course

basic knowledge of thermodynamics

elementary laws of chemistry and physics

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Predict polymer characteristics based on chemical structure and molecular architecture
  • Discuss dilute and concetrated solution and bulk behaviour of synthetic polymers
  • Use insights from physicochemical experiments to discuss the composition and architecture of polymers
  • Discuss dilute and concentrated solutions and bulk behaviour of synthetic polymers

Transversal skills

  • Use a work methodology appropriate to the task.
  • Assess one's own level of skill acquisition, and plan their on-going learning goals.
  • Continue to work through difficulties or initial failure to find optimal solutions.

Teaching methods
