This is the course website for the 2nd year Polymer Course CH242 - Introduction to Polymers - 2010/2011.
The course lecturer is Dr Rachel O'Reilly.
Link to the detailed lecture program for the course - will be updated regularly
There will be 2 tutorials (in weeks 22 and 24) and also a revision workshop on the 26th May.
This 15 lecture course builds on the work from the first year Introduction to Organic Chemistry course - Macromolecules, given by Professor Dave Haddleton. SEE LINK
After each lecture I will upload the annotated slides to this website. During the lecture I will write in black/blue or green and after the lecture I will add any further notes in red.
L14 and 15 (double lecture on the 18th March)
Revision lecture - note deltaG is positive in Q1c but this means the reaction is is not spontaneous and energy needs to be put in to drive the reaction.
