- For minors starting in September, after the registration period in March, a draw takes place in April if there are at that time more subscribers than available places.
- For minors starting in February, after the registration period in October, a draw takes place in November if there are at that time more subscribers than available places.

Even then: Once a minor is full, it is closed!

Within the minor Organic & Physical Chemistry of Monomers and Polymers, the complete organic chemistry, a large part of the organic chemistry of polymers and important aspects of physical polymer chemistry are linked.

The common thread running through the minor is a practical course in which one or more projects are devoted to the organic synthesis of small molecules, polymer synthesis and the physical characterisation of polymers. In many cases, this will be done within a continuous project starting with the synthesis of a monomer or initiator which will then be polymerised and characterised. Tutor assignments and theory modules are linked to the practicals in order to create cohesion between theory and practice.

The projects are discussed extensively in the classroom during tutor hours on the basis of the accompanying articles and work discussions. The tutor hours are supplemented with workshops and presentations that all refer to searching for literature, understanding it and presenting it / repeating the core.

You strengthen these competence areas during the program:

  • Knowledge development
  • Knowledge application
  • Research planning
  • Effective collaboration.


  • External students will be invited for an motivation/selection interview.
  • This minor is also part of the 3rd year curriculum (major) of the Bachelor of Chemistry at HAN.
