Description

Polymers:

it’s all Ancient Greek to me!

The Inaugural Lecture of David Bucknall, Professor of Materials Chemistry, Heriot-Watt University

There are a seemingly limitless variety of polymers that are already known, and potential for developing an equally large number of new polymers in the future. Given the huge variation in properties, it is little wonder that polymers are exploited in almost every aspect of our daily lives. The question that always arises is, which polymers to use?

In his inaugural lecture Professor Bucknall will explore the connection between polymer properties and their molecular structure and pose the reverse question – which polymers should we synthesise?
