CRN: 10200 2 Credit Hours Instructor: Thomas C. Marsh CHEM 487: Topics – Biomaterials TWRF 9:30-11:30 Prerequisites: MATH 109 or 113, and CHEM 201 or permission of instructor Biomaterials science is a subfield of material science that concerns itself with the properties of materials produced by living things and the interaction of synthetic material with living things. The potential biomedical application of biomaterials is a major segment of this interesting field. How do you create a stable graft between a titanium implant and natural bone? What are the chemical and structural spider silk that make it stronger than steel? This course explores the chemical and material properties of materials produced by living organism and materials that interface with biological systems. We will investigate the structure function properties of biopolymers and assemblies constructed from biomolecules. We will also examine the properties of inorganic and synthetic materials are used in biomedical and other applications. Topics include structure of biomolecular building blocks, structure of biopolymers, supramolecular polymers, metals, composites, application of biomaterials and methods of characterization. This course is designed as an elective course for students majoring in Chemistry, Biology, Biochemistry, and Materials Engineering.
