Basic knowledge of chemistry and physics
The aim of this subject is to introduce students to the molecular-level understanding of the physicochemical properties of organic substances aimed at characteristics of materials and nanomaterials. The course will be tailored to master students with a specific background and interest in material sciences and technologies, industrial chemistry, chemical engineering. The overall aim of the course is to train the students in the basic concepts and technologies related to molecular materials possessing useful functional properties. Particular attentions will be devoted to responsive and adaptive materials and to the correlation between the (nano)structure of the molecular components and the functional properties the hybrid materials.
After completing this course, the student should be able to:
- Define what constitutes an organic compound. Apply the naming and drawing conventions to describe different classes of organic compounds.
- Describe the range of molecular structures found among organic compounds.
- Describe the physical structure of chemical isomers.
- Manage general and organic chemistry issues in general.
- Understand the principles and managing the results deriving by application of spectroscopic techniques mainly devoted to the characterization of organic materials.
The course consists of frontal lessons by using slides and classroom simulation of experiments. The frontal lessons are aimed at improving students' knowledge through the presentation of theories, models and methods.
Part of the practice-oriented course will be focused on the application of spectroscopic techniques for analysis of organics and hybrid materials in general.
In the final exam will be discussed the topics presented during the lectures as well as to provide a full structural interpretation of FT-IR, MS, 1H- and 13C- NMR spectra to elucidate the structures of an unknown compound.
Experimental studies carried out by spectroscopic techniques for analyzing the information obtained can be given strong modern analytical framework for the creation of new (organic, inorganic composite, nano) materials. On the other, application of spectroscopic methods is of fundamental importance for monitoring and development of a variety of industrial processes.
