Newer Polymers and Polymerizations:
Quantum mechanics – Schrodinger’s time dependent and independent equations – Pauli’s exclusion principle – ionization energy – electron affinity – chemical binding – electro negativity and strong bonds – secondary bonds – inter atomic potential for strong bonds and weak bonds – bond energies – spring constants – free energy – internal energy – reaction kinetics.
Definition and classification of bio-materials, mechanical properties, visco-elasticity, wound-healing process, Application of biomaterial for the human body, body response to implants, blood compatibility. Implementation problems – inflammation, rejection, corrosion, structural failure. Surface modifications for improved compatibility.
