AbstractThis course will cover the synthesis, properties and applications of inorganic materials. In particular, the focus will be on photo-active coordination compounds, quasicrystals, nanocrystals (including nanowires), molecular precursors for inorganic materials and metal-organic frameworks.
ObjectiveUnderstanding the structure-property relationship and the design principles of modern inorganic materials for prospective applications in photovoltaics, electrochemical energy storage (e.g. Li-ion batteries), thermoelectrics and photochemical and photoelectrochemical water splitting.
Content(A) Introduction into the synthesis and atomic structure of modern molecular and crystalline inorganic materials.
-Quasicrystals
-Nanocrystals, including shape engineering
-Molecular precursors (including organometallic and coordination compounds) for inorganic materials
-Metal-organic frameworks
-Photoactive molecules

(B) Applications of inorganic materials:
-photovoltaics
-Li-ion batteries
-Thermoelectrics
-Photochemical and photoelectrochemical water splitting
-Light-emitting devices etc.
