The purposes of the course are to introduce both fundamental chemical principles of materials and nano-materials, and main methods for developing, optimizing, post-treating and characterizing materials regarding different physical and chemical performances.
The focus will be placed on the relation between chemical composition, structure and properties. The course will introduce the current status of materials and nano-materials technologies.
Materials chemistry focuses on the fundamental principles and applications of both conventional and advanced inorganic materials. The course is divided into the following two parts.
General inorganic materials chemistry and characterization of inorganic materials (e.g., glass chemistry, ceramic chemistry, metal chemistry, cement industry)
Chemistry of organic and inorganic nano-materials (e.g., thin films, nano-crystals and –particles, nanotubes, mesoporous materials, nano wires, etc.).
