3.034 Organic and Biomaterials Chemistry
Focuses on the chemistry and chemical structure-property relationships of soft synthetic and biologically derived materials, and aims to develop a fundamental understanding of the molecular nature of materials. Topics include methods for preparing synthetic polymers by step- and chain-growth polymerizations; polymerization reaction kinetics; chemistry of proteins and nucleic acids; DNA nanotechnology; synthetic polypeptides and artificial amino acids; application of biologically derived materials into biomedical and sensing applications; electroactive organic materials; and polymer processing and mechanical properties. Includes firsthand application of lecture topics through design-oriented experiments.
This class has 3.012 as a prerequisite.
