D1 - Knowledge and comprehension skills
The student will be able to describe the fundamental concepts of nanochemistry and how they are applied to the different classes of materials. He will understand the thermodynamic basis of the growth of nanocrystals and the interactions between them. He will be able to describe how the interactions affect the self-assembly of nanocrystals. He will know methods for controlling the size, shape, defects, and surface chemistry of nanostructures, as well as the effect of these parameters on the optical, magnetic, biological, and electrical properties of materials.
D2 - Ability to apply knowledge and understanding
The student will have the ability to draw up one or more synthetic strategies for obtaining a proposed nanostructure. As well as it will have the ability to qualitatively predict how the properties of the material are modified in the nanostructured form. Finally, the student will know which characterization approaches are necessary to validate the success of the synthetic strategies he / she proposes.
D3 - Autonomy of judgment
The student will be able to independently evaluate characterization data that identify fundamental aspects of nanostructured materials (composition, size, shape, crystalline structure). He/she will also be able to identify additional characterizations that may be necessary to uniquely identify a nanostructured material.
D4 - Communication skills
The student will be able to find information and communicate on issues related to nanochemistry.
D5 - Learning skills
The student will be able to obtain and sift information through databases and search engines, and will be able to continue to study the subject of nanochemistry independently.
