Self-Assemby of Polymers and Surfactants University of Bordeaux
THIS COURSE PROVIDES STUDENTS WITH THE THEORETICAL AND PRACTICALKNOWLEDGE OF: - surfactant properties in solution according to their chemicalstructure and environmental settings and applications to liquidformulations. - the self-assembly properties of polymers, charged polymers andcopolymers in solution as well as their characterization andapplications. - the formulation and properties of gels obtained by self-assembly ofpolymers. - self-assembly of block copolymers in the bulk and applications tosolar cells.
- Academic level: BSc as well as notions in polymer science andthermodynamics. - Selection criteria: basic knowledge in chemistry and/or physicalchemistry. - Language prerequisites: English or French. - Selection procedure: evaluation of the student's CV
> Written final exam: 3h = 100 % of the overall mark> In case of failure, a second session will be organized for the finalexam, either as a written final exam (3h, 100 % of the mark) or anoral session depending on the number of failing students..
