|Learning activities and teaching methods|
Aim of this course is to introduce to students the fundamental of polymers, their synthesis and properties.
Define main concepts, describe main approaches in the macromolecular chemistry, chemistry of polymers, their origin and properties
|Assessment methods and criteria|
The student must show a general knowledge of macromolecular substances. A part of the final exam colloquium is identifying polymers.
