Reading materials about functional groups
« on: March 19, 2024, 01:10:46 PM »

I am a graduate student working at the Polymer division. My research involves chemical reactions that change the functional groups of both monomers and polymers. Modifying the functional group changes the overall polarity, and the solvent also changes. However, my understanding of the change in the functional groups and its impact on polarity is unclear. I can not plan on changing groups and predicting suitable solvents yet. Can anyone suggest some reading materials regarding that? I want to reach this stage of thinking, "Okay, maybe changing this into that functional group and that solvent might work."

I really appreciate any help you can provide.
