Polymer Science and Applications
A polymer is a massive molecule, or macromolecule, composed of many repeated subunits. Due to their broad range of properties, each artificial and natural polymer plays essential and omnipresent roles in everyday life. The field of chemical compound science includes researchers in multiple disciplines including chemistry, physics, and engineering. Polymers are studied with in the fields of physics science and macromolecular science, and polymer science (which include polymer chemistry and polymer physics).
The main polymers application areas include:
· Biomedical Applications-Regenerative Medicine, Drug Delivery, Bone Implants and Substitutes, Biomedical Devices related Applications, Bioactive Polymers
· Polymers at surfaces and interfaces
· Energy conversion and storage
