This course examines the growing field of polymer alloys, blends and composites. The student is introduced to the current principles and practice behine these advanced polymeric materials, looking at techniques of characterization as well as the properties generated in such materials. Often linked with both polymer blends and composites is the field of reactive processing, a maturing research area with much commercial utilization that uses polymer processing equipment (typically an extruder) as a reactor for the chemical modification of polymers.
