3.034 Organic and Biomaterials Chemistry

Prereq: 3.012
U (Fall)
12 Units

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.
