Introduction to Polymer Science

Polymers are ubiquitous and are used in everything from clothing, plastics, paints, and adhesives. They are also used in biological applications including drug delivery and tissue engineering, and many nature’s macromolecules are polymers. This course will cover the synthesis of polymers, as well the interrelationship between molecular structure, morphology, and properties. Applications of polymers will be discussed and the course will end with a discussion on the environmental impact of polymers.
