Before coming to class, students should read the course schedule and check what topics will be covered. Required learning should be completed outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes.
|Course schedule||Required learning|
|Class 1||Overview of Structures and Characterization of Organic Materials||Understand structures and characterization of organic materials.|
|Class 2||Vibrational Spectroscopy||Understand infrared spectroscopy and Raman spectroscopy.|
|Class 3||Fluorescence Microspectroscopy||Understand fluorescence microspectroscopy.|
|Class 4||Thermal Analysis||Understand thermal analysis.|
|Class 5||Permittivity Measurement||Understand permittivity measurement.|
|Class 6||Scanning Probe Microscopy and Electrokinetic Measurement||Understand scanning probe microscopy and electrokinetic measurement|
|Class 7||Surface Tension Measurement and Contact Angle Measurement||Understand surface tension measurement and contact angle measurement.|
To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
Materials used in class can be found on OCW-i.
Students' fundamental knowledge of characterization of organic and polymeric materials and each instrumental analysis will be assessed. Student's course scores are based on a term-end report.
No prerequisites are necessary, but enrollment in the related courses is desirable.
