Preliminary announcement

Summer School 2014

State-of-Art chemistry tools and approaches for new-materials research

Time: August 25-29, 2014

Credits: 4 ECTS credits

Place: Aalto University, Department of Chemistry, Lecture Hall Ke2

Objectives of the course:

The course comparises state-of-art chemistry tools and approaches for the design, synthesis and tailoring of novel functional materials, covering examples of pure inorganic materials and various hybrid and composite materials, and advanced synthesis techniques such as high-pressure synthesis, low-temperature synthesis, electrochemical synthesis, molecular layer deposition and single-crystal growth. The lectures and laboratory visits will be held in English and there will be a short examination arranged on the last day of the course.
