D1 - Knowledge and ability to understand
The student will be able to describe the main intermolecular interactions responsible for the structural organization in the crystals. She will understand and predict the relationships between structure and properties of crystalline materials. He will know the problems related to the prediction of crystalline structures, also in relation to intellectual property. She will know the model of supramolecular synthons, the classification and exemplification of structural motifs common in the solid state for organic / inorganic hybrid compounds. He will know the stereochemical requirements for the design of supramolecular coordination compounds in the form of polyhedral aggregates, monodimensional, two-dimensional, three-dimensional polymeric motifs. She will know the Cambridge Structural Database for the analysis of structural motifs in crystalline compounds and for data mining.
D2 - Ability to apply knowledge and understanding
The student will have the ability to analyze and interpret the three-dimensional structure of a crystal, in terms of geometry, symmetry and energy. She will have the ability to use crystallographic databases for data mining. He will have the ability to predict and design the most common three-dimensional assembly methods. She will be able to set up a crystallization process, planning the necessary parameters.He will know the use of single crystal X-ray diffraction.
D3 - Autonomy of judgment
The student will be able to independently evaluate the structure-property correlations using the most modern data mining and structural analysis techniques. He will know the fields and limits of use of diffraction techniques.
D4 - Communicative skills
The student will be able to find information and communicate on problems related to structural chemistry.
D5 - Learning skills
The student will be able to retrieve information through databases and the web, and will be able to continue to independently study the subject of structural chemistry.
