Course Description

This course provides a good understanding of the synthesis of polymers and their commercial applications. Important properties that these materials possess, including their molecular, physical, chemical, thermal, mechanical, and electrical properties are reviewed. The forming techniques for plastics (compression molding, injection molding…) and the different parameters leading to the degradation of polymers will also be covered. Pre-req.: CHEM 248
