This course introduces the fundamental principles necessary to understand the behavior of materials at length scales larger than atoms or molecules with applications in chemistry and materials science. This course will explore topics such as nanoparticle synthesis and self assembly, ordered porous materials, catalysis, nanostructured thin films, and solar energy conversion. Size dependent properties of nanomaterials will be discussed.
