Kasko Office Hours: TBD Course Description: In order to understand biological materials and design synthetic replacements, it is imperative to understand their physical chemistry. Biomacromolecules such as protein or DNA can be analyzed and characterized by applying the fundamentals of polymer physical chemistry. In this course, we will investigate polymer structure and conformation, bulk and solution thermodynamics and phase behavior, polymer networks, and viscoelasticity. We will also apply
