    Two-Photon Writing in 3d Polymer Nanostructured Materials

    Porous Gold Obtained in Colloid Templates


  • "Polymer and Materials Science" Program

    The Department offers programs leading to a Master of Science (M.Sc.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Polymers and Materials Science.

    While the great majority of students in the Department proceed toward graduate degrees in Chemistry, students may pursue interdisciplinary programs, which are worked out on an individual basis, and approved jointly by the cooperating departments.

    Polymer and Materials Science Ph.D. program requirements:

    A Ph.D. generally takes around 4 years

    Students who start off in the M.Sc. program directLY transfer to Ph.D. in their 2-nd year or write a M.Sc. Thesis and then transfer to the Ph.D. program.

    1. Course requirements.

    Students should complete and pass 4 Graduate Courses.
    At least 2 of the courses taken must be selected from the 3 core courses below.

    There are 3 Graduate Core Courses (I, II, and III). Course I or course II are usually given in alternating years.

    All courses have about 24 - 26 lectures.

    Core courses:

    I  "Synthetic Polymer Chemistry" Prof. I. Manners/Prof. M. Georges (CHM 1301 H)
    II  "Physical Chemistry of Polymers " Prof. E. Kumacheva/Prof. M.A. Winnik (CHM 1302 H)
    III  "Solid State Materials Chemistry" Prof. G. Ozin (CHM 434 H/1260 H)

    2 other courses are typically (but not always) chosen from the core course from the following list of courses.

    • "Polymer Chemistry" (CHM 426 S / CHM 1310 H - Prof. E. Kumacheva)
    • "Statistical Mechanics of Polymer Molecules"(Prof. Whittington/Schofield)
    • "Supramolecular Chemistry" (Prof. Ozin)
    • "Structural Methods in Inorganic Chemistry" (various lecturers)
    • "Chemical Properties of Polymers" (Prof. Shoichet, Prof. Sefton)
    • "Biomaterials" (Prof. Sefton)
    • "Polymer Processing and Rheology" (Prof. Chaffey)

    2. Seminars

    Course number: CHM 1390 Y Polymer and Materials Chemistry Seminar.

    Students are expected to attend a seminar program and give the following lectures:

    •  1st year - Off topic presentation (20 min)
    •  2nd year - Thesis research seminar
    •  3rd year - An orally-defended research proposal on a topic other than the primary research topic
    •  4th year - Thesis research seminar

    3. Departmental Oral Exam

    Normally, the oral exam will be completed following course-work

    4. Research

    Perform Research, Complete a written Ph.D. Thesis and pass a Thesis Defense
    Course number: CHM 2305 Y Research in Polymer and Materials Chemistry

    Polymer & Materials Science M.Sc. program requirements:

    1. Course requirements.

    Complete and pass 2 Graduate Courses selected from the 3 core courses below. All lecture courses are ca. 24 – 26 lectures.

    There are 3 Graduate Core Courses (I, II, and III). Course I or course II are usually given in alternating years. Course III is given every year.

    I  “Synthetic Polymer Chemistry” Prof. I. Manners/Prof. M. Georges (CHM 1301 H)
    II  “Physical Chemistry of Polymers “ Prof. E. Kumacheva?Prof. M.A. Winnik (CHM 1302 H)
    III  “Solid State Materials Chemistry” Prof. G. Ozin (CHM 434 H/1260 H)

    2. Seminars

    Course number: CHM 1390 Y Polymer and Materials

    Chemistry Seminar Students are expected to attend a seminar program and in the second year give Thesis research seminar.

    3. Research

    Perform Research, Complete a written Ph.D. Thesis and pass a Thesis Defense

    Course number: CHM 2305 Y Research in Polymer and Materials Chemistry
