Chemical Polymer Technology

Polymers have the capacity to solve most of the world's complex problems like Water purification, energy management, oil extraction and recovery, advanced coatings, myriad biomedical applications, building materials, and electrical applications virtually no field of modern life would be possible without polymeric materials. Polymerization is the process of combination of many small biochemical molecules known as monomers into a covalently bonded chain. During the polymerization process, few chemical groups may be lost from each monomer. Monomers are terephthalic acid, ethylene glycol Laboratory synthetic method are step-growth polymerization and chain-growth polymerization. The essential variation between the two is that in chain growth polymerization, monomers are added to the chain one at a time only, such as in polyethylene, but in step-growth polymerization chains of monomers may combine with one another directly. Beside metals and ceramics, the study of polymers has currently become a cornerstone of material sciences and engineering. A Polymer Material Sciences and Engineering will provide you with a strong basis in the wide range of issues around structural and functional polymers.
