The goal of this worshop is to Explain structure-property relationships of polymeric materials of industrial relevance through a series of case studies. Each topic will be introduced by description of a selected case where the structure strongly affects the topic property. Special focus will be devoted to the experimental techniques for predicting the engineering and physical properties of polymers from their molecular structures.
