Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The accent is placed on explication of relation between structure and basic reactivity of organic compounds. Application of knowledge from organic chemistry in the field of production, properties and utilization of polymer-based materials.

Teaching methods



In seven lectures from organic chemistry are discussed structure and reactivity hydrocarbons and their functional derivatives: derivatives of halogens, derivatives of nitrogen, derivatives of sulfure, derivatives of oxygen. Another seven lectures discuss about properties of polymer-based materials (nature and synthetic), production of synthetic polymer-based materials, characterisation and utilisation in industry.
