CHM 4560 - Materials and Polymer Chemistry

Credits: 4
Materials and Polymer Chemistry is an overview of inorganic, organic and nanobased materials from a structure versus property approach. Basic chemical and physical principles will be applied to interdisciplinary problems in materials discovery, design, and characterization. Topics covered will include solid state chemistry (amorphous and crystalline solids), metals, semiconductors, polymeric materials and nanomaterials. Materials characterization will cover optical microscopy, electron microscopy, particle bombardment techniques for surface characterization, and scanning probe microscopy.
Prerequisite(s): CHM 2220 CHM 2320 , and CHM 3570(W) 
Four hours per week.
