CHEM 299 - Spring-Term Special Topics in Chemistry

Credits: 4
Planned Offering: Offered when interest is expressed and departmental resources permit.

Prerequisites vary with topic and instructor. Studies of special topics. May be repeated for degree credit if the topics are different. Possible topics include medicinal chemistry, materials chemistry, or atmospheric chemistry and the environment.

Spring 2014 Topic:

CHEM 299: Materials Chemistry (4). Prerequisite: CHEM 110 or 112 and at least sophomore class standing. This course provides an introduction to crystal structure for advance students. The course emphasizes physical characterization methods for solids (single-crystal X-ray diffraction, powder X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscope, basic microscopy, thermal analysis, etc.) and on the diverse number of properties of materials that result from the crystalline packing of molecules and atoms (electronic, magnetic, color, adsorption, optical, etc.). The course concludes with an introduction of nanotechnology and how the nano scale has shaped the current direction of materials chemistry. López-Mejias.
