Nagoya University, School of Engineering Lecture information system (SYLLABUS)

Physical Chemistry of Macromolecules(2.0 credits)

Course Type:Related Specialized Courses
Class Format:Lecture
Course Name : Applied Physics
Starts 1 : 3 the latter term
Elective/Compulsory : Elective
Lecturer : Yuuichi MASUBUCHI Professor 

•Course Purpose
[CAUTION: Because this course is newly designed for the new Engineering Physics course started from FY 2017, the contents are different from the lecture given in the Department of Engineering Chemistry. ]

In this lecture course, what will be delivered are the basic physical properties of polymer solutions and solids regarding the molecular characteristics of polymer chains.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics

•Course Topics
The contents would be as listed below but may be changed or modified according to the reaction of the participants. Details of the calculations may be skipped due to the time limitation, and it is expected to be followed by the participants after the lecture. Besides, the participants are expected to think about the relation to our daily life.

1. Molecular Characteristics of Polymers
2. Properties of Polymers in Solution
3. Properties of Amorphous Polymers in Melt
4. Structures and Properties of Polymers in Solutions and in Bulk
5. Polymer structure (crystals, liquid crystals, transition)
6. Viscoelastic Properties and Dynamics of Polymers

No specific textbook is assigned to this course. If necessary, there are a lot of excellent books for polymer science as listed below.

•Additional Reading
P.J.Flory, "Principles of Polymer Chemistry" (Cornell University Press, New York, 1953)
P.G.deGenne, "Scaling Concepts in Polymer Physics" (Cornell University Press, New York, 1979)
M. Doi and S. F. Edwards, "The Theory of Polymer Dynamics" (Oxford University Press, Clarendon, 1983)

•Grade Assessment
The evaluation is based on the writing examination which will be at the end of the course.

No specific condition

•Contacting Faculty
