MATSCIE 510 — Materials Chemistry
Section 100, LEC

Instructor: Banaszak Holl,Mark M; homepage

FA 2007
Credits: 3

This course presents concepts in Materials Chemistry. The main topics include:

  1. a survey of characterization methods appropriate for solid state materials, including XRD, PES, STM, AFM, SIMS, and thermal methods,
  2. syntheses of representative materials, e.g., ceramics via sol-gel, conjugated polymers, inorganic and coordination solids, and nanostructured materials, and
  3. materials properties, including electrical, optical, and magnetic behavior, and how these properties are related to molecular and solid state structure.
