WELCOME TO THE DEPARTMENT OF POLYMER CHEMISTRY

Part of the School of Chemistry
School of Polymer chemistry

Polymer chemistry studies the chemical synthesis and properties of polymers or macromolecules. Polymers can be divided into natural polymers such as DNA, proteins and cellulose, and purely synthetic polymers such as polyethylene and teflon. Synthetic polymers are for example used in plastics, fibers, elastomers, composites, coatings, adhesives and films.
