Knowledge and understanding: polymers are one of the most advanced fields of research in Materials Science. Polymer Science is an highly multidisciplinary field, spanning from organic chemistry to mechanical engineering, which cannot be treated extensively in a single course. Object of the present course is the general introduction to the field of polymer chemistry.
Applying knowledge and understanding: the student will be able to apply the acquired theoretical knowledge in Organic and Physical Chemistry to the field of polymer chemistry.
The students will have to be able to:
a) correlate the concepts (making judgements);
b) use them as theoretical background to tackle topics on polymer science not necessarily handled during the course, but connected with it;
c) explain them in an organize way using a proper scientific language.
