Polymeric Materials (Institute for Technical Chemistry and Polymer Chemistry)

polymer practical course - script and literature

Script for the practical course

The script contains the necessary theoretical background and a detailed description of each experiment. Each student will receive a copy of this script, but it is available only in german. Please download it from the german version of this page.


The script contains the necessary theoretical background in a short version. Here are several suggestions for textbooks with more detailed background and some more practical books:
