KurzbeschreibungThis 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.
LernzielUnderstanding 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.
