Polymer engineering — is generally an engineering field that designs, analyses, and/or modifies polymer materials. Polymer engineering covers aspects of petrochemical industry, polymerization, structure and characterization of polymers, properties of polymers,… … Wikipedia
Polymer — Appearance of real linear polymer chains as recorded using an atomic force microscope on surface under liquid medium. Chain contour length for this polymer is 204 nm; thickness is 0.4 nm. A polymer is a large molecule (macromolecule … Wikipedia
Polymer-bonded explosive — A polymer bonded explosive, also called PBX or plastic bonded explosive, is an explosive material in which explosive powder is bound together in a matrix using small quantities (typically 5–10% by weight) of a synthetic polymer ( plastic ). Note… … Wikipedia
Condensation polymer — Condensation polymers are any kind of polymers formed through a condensation reaction, releasing small molecules as by products such as water or methanol, as opposed to addition polymers which involve the reaction of unsaturated monomers. Types… … Wikipedia
Coil-globule transition — In polymer physics, the Coil globule transition is the collapse of a macromolecule from an expanded coil state through an ideal coil state to a collapsed globule state, or vice versa. The coil globule transition is of importance in biology due to … Wikipedia
Thermoplastics — A thermoplastic is a plastic that melts to a liquid when heated and freezes to a brittle, very glassy state when cooled sufficiently. Most thermoplastics are high molecular weight polymers whose chains associate through weak Van der Waals forces… … Wikipedia
Gelcoat — A gelcoat is a material used to provide a high quality finish on the visible surface of a fibre reinforced composite material. The most common gelcoats are based on epoxy or unsaturated polyester resin chemistry. Gelcoats are modified resins… … Wikipedia
Gel electrophoresis — apparatus – An agarose gel is placed in this buffer filled box and electrical field is applied via the power supply to the rear. The negative terminal is at the far end (black wire), so DNA migrates toward the camera. Classification… … Wikipedia
