The course presents a balanced treatment of descriptive inorganic chemistry that underpins the design and deployment of technological materials. The goal is to be comprehensive, while remaining understandable to students from diverse scientific and engineering backgrounds. This course begins by revising the construction of atoms and their properties, followed by a systematic analysis of reactivity, stability and properties. These concepts are illustrated with reference to important classes of industrial materials.
This course is part of:
- Graduate Certificate in Materials Science and Engineering
- FlexiMasters in Materials Science and Engineering
Date(s): 15 Jan 2024 to 19 Apr 2024
