Polymers 1 Université Grenoble Alpes
This course gives an overview of the polymer chemistry field from the synthesis of polymers to characterization, properties, and applications of synthetic and natural polymers. All major polymerization methods, their reaction mechanisms and kinetic aspects are considered: step growth polymerization, chain growth polymerization with ionic and radical variations, insertion polymerization. Analysis of polymer properties in solution and macromolecules specific characterization techniques will also be presented: thermodynamics, polymer/solvent interactions, average molecular weight determination by osmometry, light scattering, viscosimetry and steric exclusion chromatography (SEC). Laboratory experiments directly connected to the class topics will also be conducted, ..
