Aims, contents and method of the course

The course is an ideal supplement for the lecture 'Estimation of physical-chemical Properties' which discusses the theoretical background of the processes and methods for the estimation of properties. It consists of two parts: a seminar and a laboratory. The seminar deepens the understanding of the lecture 'Estimation of physical-chemical Properties'. It consists of tasks which have to be prepared at home and will be discussed in the seminar.
The laboratory part of the course offers the possibility to determine physical-chemical properties of fluids or polymers in escorted individual experiments at the laboratories of the Institute for Materials Chemistry. Especially experiments on the glass transition, elasticity, elastoviscosity of polymers and polymer solutions are offered. The practice comprises the whole scientific process: measurement, data analysis and protocol in a communication letter like write up.

Assessment and permitted materials
