  1. 09:30 PART II: Chemical identity

    • Substance type – Mono-constituent, multi-constituent substances, UVCB, Nanomaterials, impurities
    • Polymers (the polymerisation process, addition, condensation polymers, classification of polymers)
    • Chemical identification (IUPAC naming, EC number, CAS number and EINECS)
    • Mixtures and articles
  2. Refreshment break

  3. Continuation of PART II

    • Chemical nomenclature (Organic, inorganic)
