CHEM 536 - Synthesis and Applications of Inorganic and Nano-materials

3 units (fi 6)(EITHER, 3-0-0)

Faculty of Science

Introduction to methods of synthesizing inorganic materials with control of atomic, meso-, and micro-structure. Topics include sol-gel chemistry, chemical vapor deposition, solid-state reactions, solid-state metathesis and high-temperature self-propagating reactions, template-directed syntheses of micro and mesoporous materials, micelles and colloids, synthesis of nanoparticles and nanomaterials. Applications of these synthetic techniques to applications such as photonic materials, heterogeneous catalysts, magnetic data storage media, nanoelectronics, display technologies, alternative energy technologies, and composite materials will be discussed. Not open to students with credit in CHEM 436.
