Official Course Description:
This course is the first in a series of two mandatory courses on Nanomolecular Science which provide a survey of the field. The first part deals with the description of molecules and matter from a chemical point of view, with emphasis on basic concepts of chemical bonding, including simple covalent bonds, delocalization, intermolecular interactions to create assemblies, and the mechanical bonding relevant in supramolecular and nanomolecular systems. An introduction into photonic processes will be given in terms of photochemical reactions and photoinduced electron transfer. Properties of matter are viewed in terms of thermodynamic aspects, highlighting enthalpic and entropic effects as the driving force of chemical reactions, solvent effects, isotope effects, properties of phase mixture, etc.
In the first part of the lecture, the student is expected to get both an intuitive understanding of molecular properties and reactions as well as the tools for an appropriate quantitative description of isolated molecules, small molecular assemblies, and bulk material. The second part will focus on the (chemical) synthesis of various nanoparticles, including fullerenes and carbon nanotubes as well as metallic, semiconducting and ceramic nanoparticles. Aspects of their structure, properties and selected applications (catalysis) will also be covered. Finally, nanoporous materials (zeolites) and nanocrystalline materials will be treated.
