Knowledge and understanding: the main goal is to provide to the student the tools for the comprehension and the dissertation of bulk materials, hybrid materials and nanomaterilas using the concepts acquired in organic chemistry; particular attention will be paid to the influence of the structure-activity relationship, and to modern organic reactions allowing to tailor material properties.
Learning skills: students will acquire the specific language of the material chemistry field and will achieve the ability to correlate the various aspects of materials, from basic chemical properties to technological applications.
In particular, at the end of the course the student will be able to:
• recognize the synthetic techniques and to carry out the structural characterization of organic materials and of organic /inorganic hybrid materials
• correlate the structure and the properties of organic materials even in complex systems;
• critically understand a problem related to his profession and to propose specific solutions;
• design and complete an experiment through individual or team activities.
• retrieve bibliographic information to plan and carry out the synthesis of organic materials and organic /inorganic hybrid materials.
• collect and interpret experimental data in the laboratory;
• set up experimental activities;
• organize team-work;
• adapt to different work areas and issues;
• deliberates on important scientific and ethical issues.
• communicate chemical problems in a written and verbal form, even with the help of multimedia systems;
• sustain a contradictory on issues related to his studies;
• interact with people in multidisciplinary projects;
• carry out experimental training activities for undergraduate students.
• retrieve information from literature, databases and on the internet;
• learn independently, addressing new scientific issues or professional problems;
• continue to study solutions to complex problems, including interdisciplinary ones, finding the information needed to formulate answers and knowing how to defend their own proposals in specialized and non-specialized contexts.
