About the course
In the first part of the course, there will be an overview of viscoelastic materials, which are technologically important and interesting for both chemists and in material science. In the course, we will discuss both the characterisation and how to use materials which are both viscous and elastic. The course continues with a discussion of other properties of polymer systems, such as phase equilibria, elasticity, and conducting polymers. Another important part is adhesion: how to join different types of materials and how surfaces can be modified to enhance adhesion.
