Solid State Chemistry covers the latest advances in advanced inorganic materials. Applications range from energy storage systems, electronic materials and sensors to the more traditional but increasingly hi-tech materials and industries that include glass, cement and refractories.
This course is specifically designed to give you a broad overview of the synthesis, structure and properties of inorganic materials together with in-depth coverage of the main groups of ceramic materials.
You’ll be able to specialise further when it comes to choosing your personal research project.
