CHM325H Introduction to Inorganic and Polymer Materials Chemistry

TitleCHM325H Introduction to Inorganic and Polymer Materials Chemistry
Schedule2 lectures
TopicsMaterials chemistry involves the study of the synthesis, properties, and applications of solid state and polymeric materials and represents a rapidly growing field. This introductory course is fashioned to illustrate how inorganic and organic polymer and solid state chemistry can be rationally used to synthesize superconductors, metals, semiconductors, ceramics, elastomers, thermo-plastics, thermosets, and polymer liquid crystals, with properties that can be tailored for applications in a range of advanced technologies. Coverage will be fairly broad and is organized to crosscut many aspects of the field.
