  • Learning Objectives

    On completion of this TLP you should:

    • Know what polymers are and understand their classification based on structure, properties and chemical
    • Have a basic understanding of polymer science with which you go on and tackle more advanced areas, such as the other polymer-related TLPs detailed on the Going Further page.

    Before you start

    This TLP assumes no prior knowledge of polymer science. An understanding of basic chemistry principles is advantageous but not required.
