CHEMISTRY DEPARTMENT SEMINAR:‘‘Colloid and Interface Science for Functional Materials’’
Asst. Prof. Dr. Simge Çınar
Dept. of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering
Middle East Technical University
Materials with varying functionalities, particularly as functional, advanced or smart materials, gain increasing attention for their advanced applications in various fields such as electronics, biology, chemistry, defense, aerospace and so on. Colloidal systems, where particles ranging from few microns to nanosize are dispersed in a liquid media, are critical for many of these applications either as an end or an intermediate product. Understanding of the colloidal and interfacial phenomena enable us to improve the currently available technologies and sometimes open the doors to create new ones.
This presentation will first focus on the fabrication of colloidal particles and engineering of their interfaces and interactions, then demonstrate their impact on various systems ranging from metals to ceramics.
Date: December 11, 2018 (Tuesday)
Place: Faculty of Science Building, B Block, Seminar Room #Z-14
All interested are cordially invited.
