Overview of major polymer synthesis techniques

Wednesday, May 17, 2023
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM (EDT)

You will receive an email with a link to the GoToWebinar form once your registration is processed

* Registration open until 5/17/23 at 10:00 AM (EDT)

Event Details

This webinar is intended to provide the audience with an overview of the major polymer synthesis techniques, including free radical, emulsion, condensation and living polymerization. In order to deepen the understanding of the different polymerization techniques, polymer characterization will also be reviewed to highlight the differences between the synthesis methods. Polymer design will also be discussed in light of both the synthetic methods and characterization, specifically relating to polymers for adhesives and sealants. Finally, a brief summary of new and emerging polymers and synthetic methods will be reviewed and highlight the future of polymers within adhesives and sealants.

Objectives:

  • Attendees will learn the fundamental principles of different polymer synthesis techniques (free radical, emulsion, condensation and living polymerization)
  • A brief review of how polymers are characterized
  • Types of polymers for adhesives and sealants and major uses
  • Design of polymers for adhesives and sealants
  • New and emerging polymers for ahdesives and sealants

 Agenda:

  • Review of polymer synthetic methods
  • Polymer characterization review
  • Types of polymers for adhesives and sealants
  • Polymer design for adhesives and sealants
  • New and emerging polymer types and synthesis

Who Should Attend:

This webinar is highly suitable for Technology managers, R&D Chemists, Scientists irrespective of whether they are new to technology or established in their career. Professionals in manufacturing, process/enginnering, tech service & applications will gain in depth knowledge of the the subject matter.
