CHEM 462 is an upper-level undergraduate laboratory course that complements CHEM 452 Synthetic Polymer Chemistry. This twice-a-week lab provides hands-on training in the design, synthesis, and characterization of polymers and polymeric materials through four standard experiments (each one week) and one independent project (over five to six weeks). The independent project involves using an article from the literature as the basis for developing a short proposal. At the end of the course, students give oral presentations of their proposals, which are reviewed by their classmates.
Prerequisite or Concurrent: Chem 452 or permission from instructor. Graduate students interested in this course should enroll in the graduate level course, Chem 5570.
