CHEM 694 Nanochemistry Final Review Dr. Coe What is on the nanoscale? - How big things are, like human hair, cells, proteins, molecules Molecular scale examples of macro objects (from Drexler), i.e. Drive shafts Flagellar motors or ATP synthase Moore's Law Scaling Laws Electron Affinity (EA) and Ionization Potential (IP) relation to work function Scaling by 1/length could be n -1 , n -2 , or n -3 for 1D, 2D, or 3D growth Difference of carbon-carbon single, double, and triple bonds with the length of the chain Computational methods - difference between molecular modeling, semi-empirical, ab initio, or density functional theory methods MM+, AMBER, CHARMM, OPLS PM3, AM1, MNDO HF/6-31G*, MP2/6-31G* B3LYP/6-31G* Self Assembled phospholipid bilayers, Dimensions, DPPC, Membrane bound proteins Gramicidin and Bacteriorhodopsin Nanostructure of Rhinovirus Discovery of fullerenes and carbon nanotubes naming of SWNTs, i.e. [n,m], conductivity, chirality vs [n,m], properties and chemistry
