NNO 2200

Nanotech Applications - Plastics

4 Credits

Prerequisite: CHE 1000 or CHE 1510, and NNO 1050; or consent of instructor

This course introduces students to the properties of plastics, polymer-matrix composites, and applications of nanotechnology in plastics. The students will study physical, chemical, and mechanical properties; the techniques in characterizing these properties, along with varieties of microscopic and analytical instruments. Design and manufacturing of plastics, polymer-matrix composites, and nanoparticles-containing plastics will also be introduced. Students should be able to understand the relationship between physical properties, microstructures, processing, and design of plastics.
