Last update: Hladíková Jana (04.01.2018)
The subject is focused on theoretical fundaments of technological process for polymer manufacture, classical and modern technologies with specificity of individual monomers, manufacture and modification of commodity polymers as well as the preparation of basic industrially produced special polymers. The subject includes a summary of raw sources and methods of polymer manufacture. Each chapter is introduced by industrial ways of corresponding monomers manufacture with focus on their physical, chemical and polymerization properties.
Aim of the course -
