Report on industrial attachment with Chemical and Engineering Sciences.
ABSTRACT This report aims to provide the readers with knowledge and techniques as detailed as possible learned by the author during the 22-week Industry Attachment (IA) undergone by her from the 9th of July 2007 to the 9th of December 2007. The author was privileged to be attached to ICES, namely Institute of Chemical and Engineering Sciences, taking the program “Fabrication and Characterization of Nanotubes/ Nanoballs”. This project included the organic synthesis session and polymerizations session. In a report of this volume, it is not possible to discuss every single training regime in details. Instead, the most essential techniques, such as NMR, IR, GPC, MS, etc, and most beneficial aspects of this project, ATRP for instance, will be presented. More emphasis will be laid on the collaboration of the knowledge and techniques gained throughout IA period with any classroom knowledge acquired in the university. It is hoped that the readers will find this report informatively and concisely presented. CHEMICAL and BIOMOLECULAR ENGINEERING
