Module content
Lectures (20h):

At the beginning of the course, its participants are introduced to the main characteristic features of the structure, to the classification, synthesis and processing of macromolecular compounds. Then various types of stimuli-responsive polymers are discussed. They include shape-memory polymers, self-healing polymers, self-assembly/supramolecular polymers and polymer-based responsive nanostructured materials. The course covers aspects of synthesis, characterization and applications of such materials.

Seminar classes (15h):

Each participant of the course has to prepare a multimedia presentation on a topic related to one of those discussed during the lectures.

Additional information
Teaching methods and techniques:
  • Lectures: Multimedia presentations, combined (when necessary) with elements of a conventional lecture.
  • Seminar classes: Multimedia presentations prepared by the students.
Warunki i sposób zaliczenia poszczególnych form zajęć, w tym zasady zaliczeń poprawkowych, a także warunki dopuszczenia do egzaminu:

At the end of term, students will have to pass the test covering all the topics discussed in the lectures. The test grade will be the lecture grade.
Seminar classes grade will be based on the student’s presentation grade and student’s acivity during the classes.

Participation rules in classes:
  • Lectures:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Attendance in the lectures is mandatory.
  • Seminar classes:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Attendance in the classes is compulsory.
Method of calculating the final grade:

Final grade is the arithmetic mean of the lecture grade and seminar classes grade.

Sposób i tryb wyrównywania zaległości powstałych wskutek nieobecności studenta na zajęciach:

Each case will be considered individually.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

none

Recommended literature and teaching resources:

1) F. W. Billmeyer “Textbook of polymer science”, John Wiley & Sons (any edition)
2) Scientific papers and published conference proceedings
