Syllabus
Prerequisites: B.Sc. level knowledge of Organic Chemistry and Physical Chemistry.
Target skills and knowledge: To provide the students with basic knowledge of organic methodological skills in preparation of innovative materials, and background of (mainly) spectroscopic techniques useful to characterize them.
Skill in writing a scientific report.
Examination methods: Evaluation of the conduct in the laboratory, writting reports on the experiments performed in laboratory and oral exam, with questions related to the theoretical introduction and the experimental part of the laboratory.
Assessment criteria: Conduct during the course and ability to draft scientific reports on laboratory experiments and to present and discuss the reported results during the oral examination.
Course unit contents: The course contents concern with different experiments of organic chemistry and physical – chemistry regarding the preparation and characterization of innovative materials.

In the laboratory of organic synthesis different molecules of interest in applications for innovative materials will be prepared, purified and characterized. In particular: fulleropyrrolidine, metal – porphyrin, nanoparticles and organogel precursors; to purify the synthesized molecules extraction and separation chromatographic techniques will be employed. The characterization will be based on mass spectrometry and NMR, IR and UV – Visible spectroscopic techniques.

The chemical – physic characterization of the produced materials will be based on different optical spectroscopic techniques:
– absorption and emission experiments in UV – Visible;
– FT – IR – Visible spectroscopic techniques for the study of the linear optical properties of bulk materials and thin films: ATR and specular reflectance measurements;
– micro – Raman and Raman SERS spectroscopy.
Characterization of the non – linear absorption properties of molecular materials will be pursued by means of z – scan and input – output experiments.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Introductory theoretical lectures in the classroom followed by laboratory experiments.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Lecture notes of teachers, specialist books and articles recommended to class.
