CHEM 268 Solid State and Materials Chemistry

Topics include synthesis of solid-state materials and their characterization using experimental techniques: XRD, TEM spectroscopy, NMR, and their applications in technologies. Emphasis on new materials, e.g., polymer, biopolymers, nanomaterials, organic/inorganic composites, ceramics, superconductors, electronic, magnetic, and opto-electronic materials.


Enrollment is restricted to chemistry graduate students or students previously enrolled in CHEM 163A and CHEM 163B.
