This course will cover the subject of organic materials. Organic materials cover both bulk commodities such as polyolefins, natural biological materials and bio-inspired materials with medical and other applications, new cutting edge materials such as graphene and carbon nanotubes, and organic colourants and semiconductors with optical and electronic properties that can be tuned for use in applications such as organic electronic devices, including biosensors, LED displays, and organic solar cells, and medical applications such as biomarkers for imaging. A materials approach will be adopted. The processing-structure-property-performance paradigm will be employed. The structural, optical and electronic properties of organic materials will be discussed as will the interrelationship between synthesis, characterization and applications. The design and use of organic materials in current and future applications will be discussed.
