Annotation -
The lectures are given only in even years and is NOT a continuation of Selected chapters I. Subject is composed of three modules, 8 hours each: 1. Living/controlled polymerizations (Prof. J. Merna) Definitions, mechanisms of controlled polymerizations, strategies of macromolecular architectures synthesis, physico-chemical properties and application of advanced polymer systems. 2. Additive manufacturing (Dr. A. Sokolohorskyj) Basic processes of 3D printing. Design and model building for 3D printing. Polymeric materials for 3D printing. Conventional and less conventional technologies of 3D printing. 3. Polymers for drug delivery and release (Dr. R. Laga) Overview of polymer systems for targeted drug transport and controlled drug release. Principals of controlled drug release, systems for controlled drug release in organism (matrix systems, membrane systems, systems for transdermal delivery, polymer systems with activated drug release, nanoparticles, liposomes, soluble polymer carriers, vectors for gene therapy). Controlled drug delivery, systems with passive and active targeting.
