BREE 522 Bio-Based Polymers (3 credits)

Offered by: Bioresource Engineering (Agricultural & Environmental Sciences)

Overview

Bioresource Engineering : The structure and properties of selected biomass (e.g. vegetable oils and starches) will be reviewed. The synthesis of bio-based polymers through chemical modification, casting, compression and extrusion among other methods will be studied. The physical properties of the resulting matrices will then be reviewed. Commercial applications will be examined.
