Synthesis and characterization of polymers is focus of course. Current methods of polymer synthesis will be surveyed, practical implementation of reactions and kinetic consequences of reaction strategies in homopolymer, copolymer and block copolymer synthesis. Techniques for characterization of polymer molecular weight, chemical composition, and stereochemistry (Ft-Ir, NMR, other spectroscopic and chemical methods) will be discussed. Brief treatment of polymer solution thermodynamics and selected topics in polymer chemistry will be discussed.
