Topical Seminar by Prof. Watson Loh of UNICAMP

Topical Seminar for IMSC 2018 will be held.

Lecturer:
Prof. Watson Loh, Institute of Chemistry, UNICAMP, Brazil
(Specially appointed professor of Research Center for Structural Thermodynamics, Osaka University)

Title:
Calorimetry ―Introduction and its application for solutions and other condensed systems―

Purpose:
In this lecture course, thermodynamic properties based on calorimetry of materials and experimental methods of calorimetry are explained. Students who are interested in physical chemistry of materials, solutions, polymers, surfactants, and biological systems can learn from basic points of thermodynamics and how they can apply that idea for materials.

Outline of the course:
In the beginning, fundamental picture of chemical thermodynamics is explained. Then principles of experimental methods and several techniques and apparatuses for calorimetry is given. After understanding the scanning calorimetry and its application in chemistry and biology, the modern technique such as isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) are explained in detail. The application for kinetics analysis performed by isothermal calorimetry is also studied.

Schedule:
Jan. 23 (Wed.)  1st and 2nd Periods
Jan. 30 (Wed.)  1st, 2nd and 3rd Periods
Feb.   6 (Wed.)  1st, 2nd and 3rd Periods

Place: Graduate School of Science ,Toyonaka campus
