This course focuses on the fundamental aspects of polymer synthesis (step-growth polymerization) and a guidance of polymer science including history, sturcture, properties and industrial applications.
During this lecture, students understand significant topics of step-growth polymerization. Moreover,students should explain importances of modern artifical polymer such as PET, phenolic resin, epoxy resin, polyurethane, kevler.
Students will lean to do the followings; 1.The history of polymers; 2.The charactristics of polymer; 3. Molecular weight of polymers; 4. Polycondensation (synthetic method); 5.Condensation polymers and engineering plastic; 6.Polyaddtion (Polyurethane and its network polymer); 7. Addtion-condensation (Phenolic resin); 8.Process chemistry of polymer synthesis.
History of polymer、Molecular weight、Molecular weight distribution、Step‐growth polymerization、Polycondensation、Polyaddition、Addition-condensation、Engineering plastic
