TopicTheoretical and experimental interpretation of properties of of branched and grafted copolymers by combining theoretical and physical chemical methods
AnnotationBranched and grafted copolymers are precursors of supramolecular structures e.g., gels and other self assembled polymer systems. They are engaged in numerous industrial applications, as coatings or construction materials. Although the basic theoretical approaches to the mechanism of branching were formulated in the fifties and sixties of the last century, the mechanism of branching and grafting is still an inspiration to studies of the mechanism of the formation of such structures. The candidate of the doctor study in this area is expected additionally to the individual approach to the application of theoretical procedures in this area also to master the experimental procedures of the laboratory oriented on physical chemistry, and apply and develop the construction aspect of such methods as size exclusion chromatography with multiple detection, which is now believed to be one of the most suitable methods for the obtaining of obtaining of experimental data for the statistical analysis of polymer-molecules dimensions and their hydrodynamic properties.
