Polymer Science and Surface Science Technology
Polymer science, sometimes known as macromolecular science, is a branch of polymer research concerned with synthetic polymers such as plastics and elastomers. Researchers in the field of polymer science come from a variety of fields, including chemistry, physics, and engineering. Electronics and electrical devices, textiles, aerospace, automotive, and other industries employ polymer manufacturing. The application of polymer-based substances in electrical engineering, electronics, construction materials, packaging materials, fancy decorative items, automotive, and other fields has advanced the study of materials science in recent years. Chemical and physical processes at the two-phase interfaces of solid-gas interfaces, solid-vacuum interfaces, liquid-gas interfaces, and solid-liquid interfaces were studied using surface science and engineering. Surface science and engineering, includes tribology, with a focus on friction, wear, and surface modification techniques such surface treatment, coating, machining, polishing, and grinding. Self-assembled monolayers, heterogeneous catalysis, manufacturing of semi-conductor structures, fuel cells, and adhesives are all part of the research.
