CHEM 4201 [0.5 credit] Macromolecular Nanotechnology
Biological and synthetic macromolecules related to nanoscale phenomena. Challenges and opportunities associated with natural and synthetic polymers on the nanoscale. Molecular recognition, self-assembled nanostructures, scaffolds and templates, functional nanomaterials, amphiphilic architectures, nanocomposites, and nanomachines. Applications to sensing, biomaterials, drug delivery, and polymer based devices.
Also offered at the graduate level, with different requirements, as CHEM 5207, CHEM 5208, for which additional credit is precluded.
Lectures three hours a week.
