Contenuti

The course will focus on fundamental and advanced aspects of the structure and synthesis of macromolecules

Programma esteso

Structure and stereochemistry of macromolecules. Molecular mass distribution.

Step-wise polymerization: Molecular mass as a function of the conversion and monomer stoichiometry. Flory distribution for polycondensation. Polyfunctional monomers, mass distribution and cross-linking. Case studies of polycondensation polymers.

Chain polymerization: chemistry of the radical process. Chain-transfer polymerization: degree of polymerization according to Mayo theory.

Kinetics and thermodynamics of propagation. Copolymerization, diagrams, feed/composition diagrams and reactivity ratios.

Living anionic polymerization, block copolymers and functionalized polymers. Cationic polymerization.

Homogeneous and heterogeneous Ziegler-Natta polymerization: reaction mechanism, catalyst symmetry and stereochemical control.

Condensed information will be given on the properties of polymers in the bulk state and in solution such as amorphous and crystalline phases, viscosity ect.
