Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

Topics that will ve coverad:

  • Esterification (acid/base catalysed, low temperature reagent, large scale etc.)
  • Free radical chemistry )polymer production and curing of resins)
  • Linking chemistry to varius substrates for covalent surface modifications
  • Melamine - urea formaldehyde chemistry
  • Isocyanate chemistry
  • Molecules with non-linear optical properties for use in optical power limiting applicatons
  • Chemistry for LED´s and similar devices
  • Emerging techniques (controlled radical polymerization, "click"-chemistry, ROMP etc.)
  • Laboratory skills

Intended learning outcomes *

The aim of the course is to provide the sourse participant useful theoretical and practical skills required for successful laboratory work in a coating chemistry laboratory. Coating technology is an interdisciplinary subject and the course is designed with respect to that.

Course Disposition

The course will be biweekly seminars where all participants are required to take an active part. All participants have to prepare short presentations fr all seminars. Moderator: Eva Malmström or specially invited moderators (depending on topic). In total 15 times, ca 2 hours each time.
