CHEM 4630 - Materials Chemistry

Credits: (4)
Typically Taught Fall Semester: Full Sem
Course Fee: $20.00
Materials chemistry is the study of the synthesis, structure, properties, and applications of solid materials. Our technology-driven world is fueled by advances in materials chemistry with examples of application in areas such as nanomaterials, polymers, and energy technology. This survey course will focus on the synthesis of materials through gas, liquid, and solid phase reactions. Crystalline and molecular structure of materials will be related to electronic, optical, thermal, and mechanical properties. Some material characterization techniques including x-ray diffraction and microscopy will be covered. The accompanying lab focuses on synthesis of advanced crystalline and amorphous materials through traditional and new techniques. Analysis with scanning electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, uv/vis spectroscopy, and IR spectroscopy is included.
Three hours of lecture and one 3-hour lab a week.

Pre-requisite(s): CHEM 3610 .
