Course description and aims

In order to study the structure and properties of crystalline polymers, it is essential to understand the crystallization that is important for structural formation and acquire the ability to analyze the structure and properties by using various analytical methods. This course focuses on the wide-angle X-ray diffraction and light scattering which are essential techniques to characterize the structure and properties of crystalline polymers.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, student will be able to:
1) Have an understanding of crystallization that is important for structural formation in crystalline polymers.
2) Have a fundamental understanding of wide-angle X-ray diffraction and light scattering which are essential techniques to characterize the structure and properties of crystalline polymers.

Keywords

Structure and Properties of Polymer, Crystallization of Polymer, Wide-angle X-ray Diffraction, X-ray Diffraction of Polymer, Crystal Orientation, Light Scattering

Competencies that will be developed

Intercultural skills Communication skills Specialist skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills
