|1. Organic & Bio-organic Chemistry
|2. Characterization of Molecules& Materials
|3. Colloid Chemistry
This module focuses on the understanding, design and implementation of molecular and molecularly-inspired systems. You can give molecules new functionalities, through chemical reactions, forming new molecules. In addition, by bringing molecules together in larger units, e.g. on surfaces and nanoparticles, you can change the properties of materials.|
Organic chemistry (theory) is about understanding the reactivity of organic compounds, in particular their various functional groups. This course also discusses the structures and functionalities that play a role in biomolecules, such as proteins and nucleic acids.
In organic chemistry (lab course), based on a number of prescriptions, some typical reactions from organic and bio-organic chemistry will be carried out.
The link with state-of-the-art analytical techniques (characterization), to determine the structure and purity of the compounds made, is indispensable.
Colloid chemistry will provide a first look at how molecules influence the interfaces of liquids and solids and offers a more physical-chemical perspective by linking the physical properties of interfaces and colloidal systems. Their underlying physical laws, and how molecules can change those interfaces.
In a case study, using MatLab, a link with the required mathematical knowledge will be made to describe the physical properties.
