This subject reflects the field of contemporary interdisciplinary research developing today. The available methods and instruments allow not only to analyze materials in atomic resolution, they also allow the creation of complex two- and three-dimensional objects with precisely arranged atoms and molecules. A number of individual topics is deeply discussed in other lectured subjects, so here the emphasis is placed on the interconnection of these sub-areas.
Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

  • describe basic types of intermolecular interactions
  • to introduce basic principles of preparation of functional nanomaterials based on physical methods and supramolecular chemistry
  • schematically design the structure of functional nanomaterials for use in analytical chemistry and material engineering
