10.568 Physical Chemistry of Polymers


Class Info

Introduction to polymer science from a molecular perspective.  Covers topics in macromolecular confirmation and spatial extent, polymer solution thermodynamics and the theta state, linear viscoelasticity, rubber elasticity, and the thermodynamics and kinetics of formation of glasses and semicrystalline solids.  Also provides a basic introduction to dynamics of macromolecules in solutions and melts, with entanglements.  Presents methods for characterizing the molecular structure of polymers.
