The physical properties of organic materials are not determined only by their chemical structure. The physical properties are significantly influenced by various factors such as higher order structure composed of crystallites and amorphous regions, texture, processing history, processing method and environmental conditions. Following Advanced Course in Physical Properties of Organic Materials A, this course discusses various factors influencing the physical properties of organic/polymeric materials and fundamentals of the measurement and analysis techniques.
1. Understand the thermal properties of polymers
2. Understand the fiber formation
3. Understand the properties of semi-crystalline polymers
thermal properties, fiber formation, semicrystalline polymers
