Polymers and Soft Materials

ENG BE 504

An introduction to soft matter for students with background in materials science, chemistry and physics. This course covers general aspects of structure, properties, and performance polymers, polymer solutions and gels. Emphasis is on chain behavior, local chemical interactions and mechanical behavior across multiple size scales. Topics include methods and kinetics of material synthesis, formation assembly, and phase behavior; models of polymer mechanical behavior; techniques for characterizing the structure, phase and dynamics of soft materials; application of soft materials in biotechnology and nanotechnology. Meets with ENG ME and MS 504; students may not receive credit for both.
