Abstract:

Lab course of polymer chemistry in science faculties is not updated enough because that polymer science developed so much since last 90's. It deserves more attention to develop a polymer chemical lab course referred to more novel polymerization techniques and characterization methods. A wholly new designed course, lab of contemporary polymer chemistry, introduced in this article focuses on the training of some important but newly developed techniques and ideas in polymer science. It proves to be feasible and helpful in improving the research quality and scientific interest of students in science faculties, and builds a new way for the development of the lab course of polymer chemistry suitable for the education of creative research students.

Key words: Polymer chemistry, Undergraduate laboratory, Living polymerization, Integrated laboratory
