This course represents the culmination of the two-year integrated general/organic chemistry sequence and will introduce special topics that go beyond those traditionally covered in those courses. Material presented will focus on functional materials such as semiconductors and structures involved in energy transfer and storage. Topics such as electrochemistry, molecular orbital theory, and transition metal chemistry will be introduced to provide a solid theoretical foundation for the applications we will cover. Students will write several papers related to the material; there will also be review assignments and exams.
