Course description and aims

[Summary of the lecture] In this course, an overview of the advanced applied chemistry courses (400- and 500-level courses) under Applied Chemistry Graduate Major in 1Q and 2Q will be given.
[Aim of the lecture] The advanced applied chemistry courses provide specialist skills for students at the department of Chemical Science and Engineering, who have the competencies necessary to complete graduate major in Chemical Science and Engineering. The presentation of course outlines helps the students to acquire wide scope and motivation for pursuing cumulative learning. For students at the other graduate majors, this course provides opportunity to learn about frontier researches in the fields of applied chemistry.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will be able to:
(1) explain the curriculum of the graduate major courses of applied chemistry core courses.
(2) acquire wide scope and motivation for pursuing cumulative learning of the chemical science and engineering.


Inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, metalloenzyme (advanced bioinorganic chemistry), organometallic chemistry, coordination chemistry, transition metal complex (advanced chemistry of transition metal complexes),materials chemistry, renewable energy, nano chemistry (advanced chemical materials for energy issues), electrochemistry, energy conversion chemistry, electrocatalysis (advanced electrochemistry), energy materials chemistry, semiconductor materials chemistry, solid-state physics (advanced solid-state physical chemistry), solid-state chemistry, materials chemistry, condensed matter physics (advanced solid state chemistry)

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

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.



Reference books, course materials, etc.

Course materials are provided during class.

Assessment criteria and methods

Practice problems and interpretation for confirming the level of understanding (80%), level of class participation (20%) (The level of class participation will be calculated by discussion, small examination and so on in the lecture.)
