Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to describe theoretical and synthetic  peculiarities different polymerization classes, to select specific synthesis method for certain polymer architectures and to reason this selection.

Subject of course

This lecture deals with special aspects of polymer synthesis. Therefore, we will focus on theoretical and synthetic  peculiarities of the following polymerization classes: anionic and cationic polymerization, ROMP/ROP, controlled free radical polymerizations (NMP, ATRP, RAFT/MADIX, etc.), Ziegler-Natta-polymerisation, polyaddition, polycondensation. Moreover, the lecture deals with polymer architectures, e.g. block-copolymers, star polymers, graft polymers and dendritic polymers. Knowledge of the subject matter of VO 163.138 is expected.

Teaching methods

After an introduction, the different synthesis methods of polymers will be discussed. Finally, their employment with respect to the designated application field will be explained.
