S4486: Introduction to Solid State Chemistry in HSSP Spring 2011 (Feb. 19, 2011)
Ever wonder why bicycles are made out of aluminum and your dinner dishes aren't? Tired of boring titration reactions and acid-base chemistry? Explore how the relationships between materials structure and processing result in the properties required for different engineering applications. This class will cover the basics of electronic structure with a focus on how electronic structure dictates chemical bonding and then delve into the fundamentals and applications of engineering materials including ceramics, metals, semiconductors, glasses, polymers, and biomaterials.
