Summary: Students will learn basics in functional nano-materials chemistry and representative material systems such as self-assembly, surface and interface, thin films, nanoparticles, and mesoporous materials.
Aim: Students will understand the basics and application of those functions, and new viewpoints of chemistry through new findings such as changes in functional properties from visible macroscale to nanoscale systems, and emergence of new functions at nanoscale.
Through this course, new insight and research directions can be attained for wide range of functional chemistry.
Target: Students will understand 1) emergence of properties and functions of chemical materials from the nanoscale in individual molecules and atoms. Furthermore, students will learn 2) fabrication and characterization of those materials from nanoscale, and the design guidance for the applications.
Theme: This lecture will provide students with opportunities to understand material systems and their typical functions in nanoscale chemistry and properties and applications of those materials. Furthermore, students understand the basics and the-state-of-the-art methodologies.
