327-0111-00LPractical Laboratory Course I Information Restricted registration - show details 6 credits6PM. B. Willeke, M. R. Dusseiller, S. Morgenthaler Kobas, P. J. Walde
AbstractPractical introduction into concepts and basic principles of Materials Science and Chemistry. To become acquainted with important chemical and physical methods as well as lab safety issues.
ObjectivePractical introduction into concepts and basic principles of Materials Science and Chemistry. To become acquainted with important chemical and physical methods. Close collaboration with the course "Wissenschaftliches Arbeiten" (planning of experiments, writing reports, techniques for oral presentations).
General theoretical and practical introduction at the beginning of the practical laboratory course about safety and general behaviour in a laboratory. There will be an written lab safety test (with Moodle), which has to be passed before the practical course starts.
ContentExperiments in the field of synthetic and analytical chemistry; fracture mechanics, mechanical/thermal properties (e.g. E-module), thermodynamics, colloidal chemistry, particle tracking (DLS and microscopy), corrosion, electroplating, "forging, stone and wood processing", up to two computer theory experiments (using MATLAB; random numbers and traveling salesman), and further.
Lecture notesThe lab manual and further information for each experiment (aim of the experiment, theory, experimental procedure, data analysis) can be downloaded from the web (https://praktikum.mat.ethz.ch bzw. https://www.mat.ethz.ch/studies/bachelor/laborpraktische-ausbildung.html ).
327-0309-00LOrganic Chemistry in Materials Science2 credits1GW. R. Caseri, P. J. Walde
AbstractThis lecture allows the students to consolidate the basics of organic chemistry through selected exercises.
ObjectiveConsolidation of the basics of organic chemistry.
ContentThis lecture consists predominantly of exercises and serves mainly to prepare the students intensively for aspects in materials science, based on the lecture Chemie II. A large number of questions will be provided, which will partially be discussed in the lecture while the other part is devoted to self-study.
327-0311-00LPractical Laboratory Course III Information Restricted registration - show details 3 credits6PM. B. Willeke, C. Battaglia, A. Borgschulte, P. J. Walde
AbstractTo impart basic knowledge and experimental competence using selected examples from chemistry and physics.
ObjectiveTo impart basic knowledge and experimental competence using selected examples from chemistry and physics.
ContentChemistry III: Synthesis of PMMA via Transesterification; manufacture of poly(methylmethacrylat) via radical polymerization of methylmethacrylat; 3D-printing.
Physics I: Powder diffractometry, single crystal radiography, capillary rheometry, viscoelasticity of the polymer melt (or an equivalent exp.), 2 phyiscs experiments (out of 4) at the EMPA: e.g. X-ray flourescence analysis, impedance measurements of batteries, "power to gas" or texture measurement, building a Lithium ionic battery; and two further physic experiments at D-Phys (e.g. about "elastic constants" or "inference and diffraction" ).
Lecture notesNotes with information for each experiment (aim of the experiment, theory, experimental procedure, data analysis) can be downloaded from the web (https://praktikum.mat.ethz.ch or https://www.mat.ethz.ch/studies/bachelor/laborpraktische-ausbildung.html).
Prerequisites / NoticeVoraussetzungen: 1. Erfolgreiche Teilnahme sowohl am D-MATL Praktikum I als auch II. 2. Bestandene Chemie I/II Prüfung und/oder bestandene Basisprüfung. Über allfällige Ausnahmen entscheidet der Praktikumsverantwortliche auf Anfrage.
327-2105-00LSupramolecular Aspects of Polymers2 credits1GP. J. Walde
AbstractPreparation, characterization and applications of polymolecular aggregates formed from amphiphilic block copolymers.
ObjectiveTo become acquainted with the principles of the self-assembly of amphiphilic block copolymers into micelles and vesicles and to become acquainted with some of the properties and applications of these aggregates.
ContentWith selected recent examples on the self-assembly of amphiphilic block copolymers several basic aspects and possible applications will be discussed. The focus will mainly be on micelles and vesicles.
