The student will have the possibility to experiment with mechanical, thermal and rheological properties of polymers and metals.
Basics of the structure of solid state materials and X-ray diffraction.
The following experiments will be carried out in groups of three students each:

- Strain-stress deformation curves of polymers and metals
- Synthesis of polystyrene
- Measure of the molecular weight of the synthesized polystyrene, by using SEC and viscometry
- Microdurimeter
- Synthesis and characterization of nano particles
- Production and characterization of polymers with anti-bacteric properties
- William F. Smith, Scienza e Tecnologia dei materiali, McGraw-Hill, 1995
