Overview

Polystyrene is one of the top selling polymers worldwide. Its extended use comes with known issues such as its non biodegradation. However, ease of manufacture, number of applications and abundance of raw materials have led to polystyrene becoming one of the most important chemicals of our time. Only a few are aware of the special chemistry and the real market for new uses of Polystyrene. This course, besides discussing Polystyrene applications and properties also sheds light into less known applications and chemistry of Polystyrene.
