OBJECTIVE:
• To enable the students to understand the basic concept of polymer, mechanism and various techniques of polymerization, characterization of polymers by molecular weight, reactions and degradation of polymers.

UNIT I

BASIC CONCEPTS OF POLYMER

Basic concepts of macromolecules – Monomers - Functionality - Classification and nomenclature of polymers - Types of polymers.Step growth polymerization - Mechanism - Kinetics - Bi-functional systems - Poly functional systems.

UNIT II

POLYMERIZATION MECHANISM

9

Addition polymerization Mechanism and kinetics of free radical – Cationic - Anionic Polymerisation - Initiator systems - Chain length and degree of Polymerization – Control of molecular weight - Chain transfer - Inhibition Coordination polymerization - Mechanism – Kinetics - Ring opening polymerization-Atom transfer radical-polymerization. Reversible Addition Fragmentation Termination (RAFT).


UNIT III

COPOLYMERIZATION MECHANISM

9

Copolymerization - Mechanism and Kinetics of free radical - Ionic copolymerization - Determination of Monomer reactivity ratios. Polymerization techniques - Bulk polymerization - Solution polymerization - Suspension polymerization - Emulsion polymerization - Interfacial condensation.

UNIT IV

POLYMER MOLECULARWEIGHT

9

Molecular weight- Molecular weight averages - Molecular weight distribution - Unidispersity, polydispersity, Degree of polymerization. Molecular weight determination - Basic concepts of end group analysis, colligative properties, osmametry, light scattering, and gel permeation chromatography - Viscosity of polymers solutions.

UNIT V

REACTIONS OF POLYMERS

9

Chemical reactions of polymers – Addition and substitution reactions - Hydrolysis – Acidolysis – Aminolysis –– cross linking reactions. Polymer degradation – Mechanical degradation – Oxidative degradation – Hydrolytic degradation – Photo degradation.

TOTAL : 45 PERIODS

OUTCOMES: Upon completion of this course,
• Students will be able to develop the knowledge in the concepts of polymers, their classifications and nomenclature.
• Students will able to evaluate the mechanism and kinetics of free radical cationic and anionic polymerization
• Students will able to appraise the mechanism and kinetics of copolymer free radical the synthesis techniques for polymer.
• Students will able to determine the molecular weight of the polymer and understand the techniques used for determination.
• Students will be aware about degradation mechanism of polymers and chemical reaction of polymers
