Course Information

Course Objectivs

O1 This curricular unit, whose content will be continued in the second semester, aims to provide the student with the necessary knowledge for the chemical synthesis of nanomaterials (not only the inorganic nanomaterials) and with the training in the techniques used for their preparation and transformation into functional architectures.

O2 Relevant examples, from the technological point of view, which are beyond the usual routes of chemical synthesis will also be highlighted.

Evaluation Criteria

Classification Type: Quantitative (0-20)
Evaluation Model: B
Evaluation Methodology: The evaluation will consist of one writen exam (minimum score 9.5, 50% of final score) and of the information obtained through the laboratory lessons, which will take into consideration the preparation of the lab work, level of attendance, students laboratory performance and the reports (1 mini-project report/monograph with oral presentation (30%) and reports of 2 other practical works (20%)). The exam is intended to measure the knowledge and skills acquired by the students throughout the semester. Practical evaluation: the laboratory work allows the students to develop and strengthen skills of organization, work planning, analysis and presentation of results, report writing, oral communication and teamwork. Except in special cases, enrolled in the regulation of assessment and student learning at the University of Madeira, students may only recover on the complementary period one of failed evaluatio Only the students with approval on the practice component (including student workers) may take the exam in the complementary period.
