Artificial Molecular Machines|
This course will cover recent advances in the design, synthesis, and applications of nanoscale synthetic molecular "machines." Topics covered will include molecular rotors, switches, valves, pumps, muscles, elevators, sensors, and motors. Special emphasis will be placed on the kinetics and thermodynamics of these systems.
Designing, Creating, and Realizing, Quantitative Reasoning
Students will quantitatively evaluate the thermodynamics and kinetics of artificial molecular machines.
Students will propose and discuss their own design for a new functional molecular machine.
