FSAD 4360 - Fiber Chemistry


     
Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: FSAD 1350  and FSAD 1360  and FSAD 3350 , or equivalent.

T. Uyar.

This course covers the chemical structure, physical and thermal properties of commercially important synthetic and natural fibers. This course also emphasizes the structure-property relationship of fibers and their end-use. This course focus on chemistry throughout the fiber production and the recycle/upcycle path of textile fibers in the market. The functionalization of fibers, dyeing and finishing processes of textile fibers with experimental component are also included. This course provides understanding of suitable approaches for dyeing and finishing processes of textiles based on their chemistry and investigate more sustainable approaches/processes for the textile industry. 

Outcome 1: Identity and classify textile fibers with respect to their chemical structure/nature.

Outcome 2: Evaluate the structure-property relationship of the fibers in relation to their chemical structures and predict the ultimate properties of the textile fibers and their end-uses.

Outcome 3: Understand the role of chemistry throughout the fiber production and the recycle/upcycle path of textile fibers in the market.

Outcome 4: Develop creatively/critically thinking and solve real-life scientific challenges in textile/fiber industry by learning how to apply interdisciplinary approaches by combining fiber science, chemistry, materials science and textile engineering.

Outcome 5: Discuss the environmental issues and the sustainability aspects regard to chemistry used in fibers and textiles.

Outcome 6: Propose suitable approaches for dyeing and finishing processes of textile fibers based on their chemistry and propose more sustainable approaches/processes for the textile industry.

Outcome 7: Build teamwork skills, scientific writing skills and oral presentation skills.
