      The goalThe goal is to provide a description of the emerging field of nanostructured polymeric systems. A predominately polymer science approach to nanomaterials will be presented. It will give students overview of possibilities to manipulate with polymers at the nanoscale in order to obtain, process an apply functional and nanostructured polymeric materials.
      The outcomeAfter completion of the course students posses a knowledge about basic principles of nanochemistry of polymeric materials. They are able to describe a method to obtain and manipulate with particular nanostructured polymeric material. They are able to understand and predict the way in which a certain nanostructured polymeric system can be applied for a particular functional material.
