Online Course Requirement
Surface chemistry, which is the subject of this lecture, is a very important and fundamental element that cannot be ignored in various research fields dealing with solid materials such as solid state physics, solid state chemistry, and materials science. Deep understanding is important about physical chemistry and quantum mechanics as they are closely related to surface chemistry.Avoid private language during class.
