Annotation -
The main objective of the course is to deepen the knowledge of macromolecular chemistry and further to extend this knowledge by new findings in the field: basic terms, polymer nomenclature, molecular structure of polymers, general principles and classification of polyreactions, polymerizability-thermodynamics of polymerization, radical polymerizations, ionic processes, anionic polymerization, cationic polymerization, coordination polymerization, polycondensation and polyaddition. Block copolymers, optically active polymers, liquid crystalline polymers, special polyinsertion processes, polymerization of cyclic monomers, cyclic oligomers, living polymerizations, macromonomers. Lectures are designed to give the specific knowledge to broader theoretical and also technological context.
