About the course
This course is focused primarily on polymer nanocomposites, based on the lecturer’s research experience as well as open literature.
This is a new course offered based on the lecturer technical elective senior and graduate level at the UT Austin curriculum. The lecturer’s new book: Fundamental, Properties, and Applications of Polymer Nanocomposites, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2016 is recommended to accompany with this course will provide more in-depth knowledge of this subject.
