1 Instrumental analysis in surface, polymer and nanoscience (5 cr) Puu Lokanathan Arcot Department of Forest Products Technology School of Chemical Technology Aalto University 1 st lecture 7 th January 2014

2 Important notification THE COURSE CODE WAS CHANGED IN Former code: Puu PRESENT CODE: Puu

3 Course outcome To acquaint the student with analytical methods for (bio-based) polymeric materials with a heavy emphasis on nanosized objects and surface analysis. to roughly understand the principles of each analytical technique to understand what kind of information can be gained with each technique to choose the correct analytical technique for the desired analysis 3

4 Course contents Spectroscopy: principles and practice of Infrared and Raman spectroscopy + some more limited surface sensitive techniques Chromatography: basics of high performance liquid chromatography and size exclusion chromatography Microscopy: electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy Surface analysis: Surface sensitive techniques and model film approach 4

5 Lectures * Visiting lecturers NOTE: This may not be the exact order of the lectures; the changes will be updated to Noppa. 1. Course introduction 2. Surface analysis: model surface approach 3. Starting with the necessary basics 4. Surface energy, Surface charge measurement 5. Infrared spectroscopy 6. Raman spectroscopy* 7. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy* 8. Surface analysis using Surface plasmon resonance 9. Quartz crystal microbalance* 10. Atomic force microscopy* 11. NMR * 12. Chromatography: HPLC and Size exclusion 13. Optical and Electron microscopy 14. Ellipsometry/X-ray reflectivity 5

6 Lectures on Monday, Wednesday and Friday No lectures from 9 th February till 7 th of March Compulsory laboratory exercises in March and April Written examination The material is available on the course website (Noppa only) Any questions, please ask me: Lokanathan Arcot Office 311 (Puu 1) Program 6

7 Previous years Lectures – 1 lecture/week Jan 1 st week – May (5½ months) Lab excercise – April last week – end of May Program compared to last year This year Lectures – 3 lectures/week Jan 1 st week – March 2 nd week (2½ months) Lab excercise – March and April Theory Experiment 7

8 Program: visiting lecturers Raman spectroscopy: Dr. Tuomas Hänninen (VTT) Quartz Crystal Microbalance: Dr. Tekla Tammelin (VTT) X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy: Dr. Leena-Sisko Johansson (Aalto) AFM : Dr. Juan Valle Delgado NMR 8

9 Laboratory exercise labworks intended for a 6 week period March - April works are mainly demo-based however, you have to interpret the results yourself (time consuming) in the end, everyone writes a report on the methods and results DEADLINE for the report: Friday 25 th May EVERYBODY MUST PARTICIPATE IN THE LABWORKS. MORE INFORMATION ON THE TIMES AND DATES WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON. 9

10 Laboratory exercise related lectures DateTimePlaceTopic Mar 2 nd (Mon)12.15 – 2L1 Introduction to experimental exercises, samples given (on 2nd form groups of 3, choose time/day for each technique depending on convenience) Mar 10 th (Tue)10.15– Exercise AFM introduction Mar 23 rd (Mon)10.15– Exercise Infrared and Raman spectroscopy introduction Apr – 4336Demonstration of QCM-D and SPR techniques Apr 15 th ( Wed)10.15–11.15L1Exercise NMR introduction Note: PhD students will be helping you with measurements Further information on 2nd of May during the introduction lecture 10

11 Laboratory exercise PlaceTimePlaceTopic Mar 3 rd Sample dissolution (collect back dissolved samples on 4 th ) Mar 5 and Spin coating Mar Atomic force microscopy exercise Mar Infrared and Raman spectroscopy exercise April NMR exercise 11

12 Examination Written examination 1 st exam – May 28 th 2 nd exam (for students missing the 1 st ) – July/August (Students collectively decide) DEADLINE for the experimental exercise report: Friday 25 th May 12
