MIT 3.091 Introduction to Solid State Chemistry - Fall 2004

This course explores the basic principles of chemistry and their application to engineering systems. It deals with the relationship between electronic structure, chemical bonding, and atomic order. It also investigates the characterization of atomic arrangements in crystalline and amorphous solids: metals, ceramics, semiconductors, and polymers (including proteins). Topics covered include organic chemistry, solution chemistry, acid-base equilibria, electrochemistry, biochemistry, chemical kinetics, diffusion, and phase diagrams. Examples are drawn from industrial practice (including the environmental impact of chemical processes), from energy generation and storage, e.g., batteries and fuel cells, and from emerging technologies, e.g., photonic and biomedical devices.

Course Highlights

This course features a complete set of lecture videos (two audio-only), as well as a large selection of readings, homework assignments, weekly quizzes, and exams.

Thank you very much for these courses.

Please tell me where i can find the videos 31 and 32 of Introduction to Solid State Chemistry.

Warm Regards

I watched this entire semester. I got an A in gen chem last semester, largely because professor Sadoway explained the topics much more clearly than my own professors did.

Thanks so much for these videos. They are all very helpful.

I am pushing 60, and I think I speak for many people my age who finished their own education before the advent of personal computers and the internet. This avenue for learning is the most intelligent and correct use of the human intellect I have ever experienced. It is right in every way. I am free to select whatever I am interested in, and I can be educated by the best minds in the country. I don't have to qualify to attend, and I don't have to pay a fee. I am shocked that there are not millions, and millions of viewers. Our country is struggling to educate young people while you are already providing the solution. You have really struck the forces of darkness a heavy blow with this great, and unselfish strategy.
