AbstractThis 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.
ObjectiveUnderstanding 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.
Content(A) Introduction into the synthesis and atomic structure of modern molecular and crystalline inorganic materials.
-Quasicrystals
-Nanocrystals, including shape engineering
-Molecular precursors (including organometallic and coordination compounds) for inorganic materials
-Metal-organic frameworks
-Photoactive molecules

(B) Applications of inorganic materials:
-photovoltaics
-Li-ion batteries
-Thermoelectrics
-Photochemical and photoelectrochemical water splitting
-Light-emitting devices etc.

AbstractTheory and applications of NMR spectroscopy with a focus of its use to problems in Inorganic Chemistry.
The use of the Bloch Equations to describe broadband and selective excitation, measurement techniques and processing strategies of NMR data, applications of NMR to the study of molecular structure, chemical exchange processes, diffusion spectroscopy, and solid-state NMR techniques.
ObjectiveIn depth understanding of both practical and theoretical aspects of solution and solid-state NMR and its application to problems in Inorganic Chemistry
ContentSelection of the following themes:
1. Bloch Equations and its use to understand broadband and selective pulses.
2. Measurement techniques and processing strategies of NMR data.
3. Applications of NMR to the study of molecular structure: Experiments and strategies to solve problems in Inorganic Chemistry.
4. Application of NMR to the study of chemical exchange processes.
5. Application of NMR to the study of self-diffusion and the determination of diffusion coefficients.
6. Differences and similarities between fundamental interactions in solution and solid-state NMR
7. Experimental techniques in solid-state NMR (Magic Angle Spinning, Cross Polarization, Decoupling and Recoupling Techniques, MQMAS)
8. The use of Dynamic Nuclear Polarization for the study of surfaces.
