Introduces students to the environmental aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology. We will study the fundamental physical chemical properties, characterization, environmental implications, and environmental applications of nanoparticles and nanomaterials. Case studies from recent publications on engineered carbon nanomaterials such as fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, and graphene will be discussed.

Note: Likely offered Spring 2021.
Prerequisite: College-level chemistry and materials science courses or equivalent. Engineering Sciences 165 required for undergraduates. Undergraduates will require permission from the instructor.
