Venue: University of Sheffield

These IRC courses, presented by Professor John Ebdon (JRE) and Dr Barry Hunt (BJH), are designed as an introduction to the subject of polymer science and give an overview of how this applies to a wide range of materials, processes, products and applications. If your company works with plastics, rubbers, adhesives, composites, coatings, fibres or packaging and requires some basic knowledge about polymeric materials, or have a requirement to analyse or characterise their behaviour, then these courses will benefit you.

Basic Polymer Science part I introduces the science underlying the synthesis and processing of polymers. It will provide you with some basic information about polymer structure and properties, and present some examples of their applications.

Basic Polymer Science part II provides an overview of the range of modern instrumental techniques which can be used to analyse the structure and behaviour of polymeric materials. It will give a more detailed and in-depth view of some of the topics briefly presented in part I.

You can attend either of these modules independently, but they are designed to complement one another and to give a comprehensive introduction to Polymer Science.
