Course Information

Course Objectivs

O1 This curricular unit, whose content complements the previous Nanochemistry I, will provide the student with the necessary training for the preparation and functionalization of polymeric nanoparticles (organic, coordination based and biological nanoparticles), dendrimers (organic and organometallic), gels and nanocapsules.

O2 The student should be able to exploit the opportunities offered by supramolecular chemistry for the preparation of nanomaterials and bioinspired materialsacquire and apply knowledge of organic and organometallic synthesis in aqueous and non aqueous systems, to handle materials in inert atmosphere and vacuum and to apply the skills acquired in other curricular units in the characterization of the nanomaterials studied in this unit.

Evaluation Criteria

Classification Type: Quantitative (0-20)
Evaluation Model: B
Evaluation Methodology: The evaluation will consist of one writen test (minimum score 9.5, 50% of final score) and of the information obtained through the laboratory lessons (50%). The test 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. Only the students approved on the practice component (including student workers) of the course may recover the test in the complementary period.
