This is a treatise course on chemical processing of materials. The primary objective of this course is to provide an introduction to various chemical synthesis and formulation techniques for the study of advanced materials including metals, alloys, semiconductors, ceramics, carbons, polymers, coatings, thin films, nanoparticles, and nanostructured materials. The course will discuss both established chemical processing methods and recent advances in materials synthesis and fabrication. Other topics to be covered include thermodynamics and kinetics in chemistry, structure-property relations, and materials characterization techniques.
