in Polymer Science and Engineering: Characterization of Polymers (CHE 740) (F2007 )
It was developed to attend the demand in the Faculty of Engineering.
Developed and offered first time Fall 2007, attended by students from Chem Eng, Elec & Comp Eng, Mech & Mechatr Eng.
Course Outline: introd to polymer structure,
characterization of molecular weight and chemical structure using
spectroscopy (FTIR and NMR); introd to polymer
morphology, characterization of crystallinity (XRD); characterization of
thermal properties (TGA, DSC); characterization of mechanical properties
(stress strain analysis, DMTA).
Rational: to provide engineers adequate information for characterization of
chemical and physical properties of polymer materials with understanding of
fundamental principles and practical aspects of different methods of
