Learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • explain the principles of different methods for production of materials from solid phase, liquid phase, gas phase and solution
  • explain and compare methods to produce various types of porous materials
  • explain and compare methods to produce nanostructured materials
  • describe the strengths of different methods and their limitations
  • give examples of technical applications of material produced with different methods

Content

Chemical synthesis of inorganic and hybrid materials: solid phase, material production from solutions, melt systems and gas phase. General principles and prerequisites are discussed for each method with concrete examples of technically important materials. Especially, inorganic polymers, porous materials and nanostructured materials are treated.

Instruction

Lectures, laboratory work and seminars. Excursion and guest lectures.

Assessment

Written and oral presentations and active participation in seminars (3 credits), as well as laboratory exercises and excursion (2 credits). The final grade is a weighted sum of the results from the different course components.

If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
