CH3103 - Materials and Process Chemistry
|Student Contribution Band:
Offered in SP2, in even numbered years only
Thermodynamics is essential to understanding and predicting chemical reactivity. This
subject will provide students with the necessary background in thermodynamics and
discusses its application in areas relating to energy, materials and industry. Topics
include: Fundamental and applied thermodynamics; surface chemistry and heterogeneous
catalysis; corrosion and industrial electrochemistry; minerals processing chemistry;
the production of polymers and their properties; band theory and photovoltaics; nanomaterials
(including an introduction to metallosupramolecular chemistry, self assembly, molecular
recognition, molecular machines; smart polymers).
- to provide students with a sound background in chemical thermodynamics;
- to enable students to apply chemical thermodynamic principles to industrially important
processes, including those used in minerals processing;
- to enable students to be familiar with the electrochemical principles relating to
corrosion and industrial electrochemistry;
- to enable students to be familiar with the production and properties of modern materials
including polymers and nanomaterials.
