Objectives

This course is suitable for master’s students in chemical or materials engineering. An introduction to Polymer science (Polymer Physics and Polymer Chemistry) is required and some knowledge of solid mechanics, materials characterization and of polymer rheology will be very useful.
At the end of the course the students should have some working knowledge of the synthesis methods, structure, properties and some applications of soft innovative materials including hydrogels, coatings and elastomers.
