Student Learning Outcomes

1. Describe the structure of solids in terms of unit cells.
2. Apply synthetic approaches to create nanomaterials.
3. Differentiate nanomaterials from bulk materials.
4. Describe the magnetic structure of materials.
5. Develop Latimer, Frost and Pourbaix diagrams to describe the redox potential of species.
6. Investigate important catalytic cycles in industry and bioinorganic chemistry.
7. Synthesize solid-state materials using various methods to demonstrate the relationship between the synthetic method and the morphology and size of the particles.
8. Use spectroscopy, microscopy and calorimetry to characterize synthesized materials.
