  Course Description
This course will provide a molecular and atomistic understanding of soft and solid state materials, including inorganic solids, polymers, organic semiconductors, organic-inorganic hybrids, and biomaterials. Symmetry aspects of chemical bonding and crystallographic nomenclature will be covered as well as electrochemistry and important characterization techniques including X-ray diffraction, electron microscopy, and super-resolution microscopy. Elements of solid-state chemistry and physics will be invoked to account for the electronic and magnetic properties of metals and semiconductors. The effects of defects and non-stoichiometry will be discussed, as will the role of finite size with reference to recent advances in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Special topics pertaining to catalysis, energy storage and conversion, biosensors and/or electronic devices will be introduced.
