OBJECTIVES:
• To make the student conversant with
• The basic concepts of polymers, classification of polymers, copolymer types and tactility.
• The kinetics & mechanism of different types addition polymerization and free radical copolymerization
• The kinetics & mechanism of two types of condensation polymerization and ring-opening polymerization
• Various types of polymerization techniques
• The molecular weight and its distribution and different methods of molecular weight determination.

UNIT I

BASIC CONCEPTS OF POLYMERS

9

Basic concepts of polymers – - Monomers -degree of polymerization– significance of functionality – classification of polymers based on :source, structure, thermal processing behaviour, composition and structure, mechanism, intermolecular forces – nomenclature of polymers –tacticity – copolymers and its types :alternate, random, block and graft copolymers.

UNIT II

ADDITIONPOLYMERISATION

9

Kinetics and mechanism of free radical polymerization: chain transfer, Inhibition and retardation– Kinetics and mechanism of cationic polymerisation and anionic polymerisation–livingpolymers– Ziegler-Nattacatalysts–coordinationpolymerisation–kineticsoffreeradicalcopolymerisation – copolymer equation – monomer reactivity ratio and its significance.


UNIT III

CONDENSATIONPOLYMERISATION

9

Kinetics of poly-condensation reactions (acid catalysed and self-catalysed) – ring-opening polymerization – multi chain polymerization: branching, cross-linking–step-wisecopolymerization– methodsofsynthesizingcopolymers: statistical, alternate and block copolymers

UNIT IV

POLYMERISATIONTECHNIQUES

9

Classification of polymerisation techniques: homogenous and heterogeneous polymerisation – bulk or mass polymerisation – Tromms droff effect – solutionpolymerisation– suspensionpolymerisation–emulsionpolymerisation–interfacialpolymerisation– meltpolycondensation. Advanced Polymerization Techniques - Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization (ATRP), Group Transfer Polymerization (GTP), Reversible Addition Fragmentation Termination (RAFT).

UNIT V

MOLECULARWEIGHTANDITSDISTRIBUTION

9

Molecular weight of polymer – number, weight and viscosity average molecular weights – molecular weight distribution (problems) – molecular weight determination: end-group analysis, colligative properties, osmometry, light scattering, gel permeation chromatography and viscometry.
