This subject is designed for postgraduate chemical engineering students whowish to gain a general understanding of polymerization processes.Particular emphasis is given to free-radical (co)polymerization processes,their reactions, basic kinetics and industrial applications. The coursewill also address polymer characterization techniques ranging fromchromatography to mass spectrometry. In addition, novel living methods offree-radical polymerization will be discussed. The material may beaugmented with lab visits, demonstrations, and industry visits. A largeresearch assignment, e.g. a review of current literature material, including an oralpresentation is part of the assessment.
