Id: 008756 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


Topics include conformation and configuration of vinyl polymers and polypeptides, energetics of chain folding and examination of the forces dictating ordered structures, helix to coil transitions in biopolymers with emphasis on polypeptide structures, instrumental analysis of biopolymer conformation, synthesis of biopolymers including polypeptides, polysaccarides and polynucleotides, and examination of relationships between synthetic polymers and naturally occurring polymers.
