Optical Properties of Nanoparticles

This course is designed for graduate students in the school of chemistry and biochemistry. Also, students from different academic units, including physics, materials science, electrical and chemical engineering, and others are encouraged to take this course. The course will highlight recent advances in the area of plasmonics and the focus will be on light-matter integration at the nanoscale, optical properties of nanoparticles, the unique world of metal nanoparticles, and the importance of metal nanoparticles for diverse applications including, electronics, photonics, and nanomedicine.

Chemical Principles I Laboratory

The laboratory portion of this course focuses on foundational principles and essential techniques of chemistry. These conceptual and technical tools have great relevance to many issues of importance to society, including climate change, human health, economic security, and more. SLS-related experiments in CHEM 1211K will be related to five threads of sustainability in chemistry: Green Chemistry, Chemistry and Society, Everyday Chemical Analysis, Computational Chemistry, and Climate Change.

Synthesis Lab I

Synthesis Lab I introduces you examples of organic reactions that have impact in real-life industry and business. Students will learn how does organic chemistry improve the overall quality of life for all by the chemical synthesis of pharmaceuticals, dyes, polymer materials, etc in a sustainable fashion.

Chemical Principles II

This Honors Program section of Chemical Principles II differs from traditional large lectures in two key areas: First, core chemical concepts are introduced by considering "big questions" in chemistry, typically pertaining to the challenge of powering the planet with clean energy. For instance, how do catalytic converters mitigating transportation emissions, and what are the impacts on pricing and availability of precious metals?

Fundamentals and Challenges for a Sustainable Chemical Enterprise

In the chemical enterprise (industry, government and academia), chemists and engineers are involved in and are responsible for the development of new products, materials and manufacturing processes. These activities include developing manufacturing processes that are environmentally friendlier, safer for workers and society, and economically more sustainable. They participate in and contribute to all segments of the supply chain, from cradle to grave (nature back to nature).
