    The goalThis course is designed to provide a fundamental aspects of polymerization in hetergoneiuos systems, especially emulsion polymerization and application in industry.
    The outcomeAfter the students fulfilled all the requirements and passed the exam, they acquired konwledge about basic principles and polymerization techniques in heterogeniuos systems; capable to select a proper synthesis technique to get desired final product; capable to monitor process and final product.
    Contents of lectures1. Purpose and application of polymerizations in heterogeniuos systems. 2. Emulsion polymerization: traditional and inverse emulsion polymerization. 3. A latex synthesis, propeeties and application. 4. Suspoension polymerization. 5. Dispersion polymerization. 6. Micro- and nano-emulsions. 7. Application of surfactnats in heterogenious polyemrization. 8. Characterization of the obtained polymers.
