    The goalTThe purpose of this course is to introduce students with the basic principles of surface modification of micro-and nano-materials, used for designing the boundary surface in multiphase composite materials. Modification procedures were planned with the aim of designing surface properties that contribute to the physical interactions or could provide chemical cross-linking within composite materials. In order to introduce students with the methodology of process parameters influences on the properties of the obtained materials, specific methods for characterization were chosen to determine the relation between the selected synthesis and properties of the final products.
    The outcomeThe students will gain theoretical and practical knowledge regarding the synthetic procedures and processes for obtaining functionalized micro-and nanomaterials used in the production of composite materials. They will learn about the process of designing the properties of the interface of the components in system in order to achieve the desired mechanical, thermal and optical properties of the composite material. The students will be able to choose the modification method, as well as to monitor and control the process of synthesis, characterization of the final products and to define the further application of the obtained material.
    Contents of lecturesWithin the course, it will be considered different modification procedures, such as the introduction of functional groups based on aldehydes, ketones, alcohols, epoxides, amines and carboxylic acid derivatives, and heterocyclic compounds used for the modification of the boundary interface. The development of the strategy for the surface modification to obtain desired properties of the final material in a relation to the characteristic of initial surface. The selected synthesis of functional organic compounds for modification of inorganic compounds: silicon dioxide, titanium (IV) oxide; carbon nanomaterials and polymeric materials: polyacrylates, polyesters, polyacrylonitrile or their copolymers for the implementation in composites. Specific spectroscopic characterization of functionalized materials and quantitative methods for determination of the degree of modification.
    Contents of exercisesDuring laboratory exercises students will be introduced to the experimental techniques which are necessary for the synthesis and characterization of functionalized micro- and nanomaterials. Synthesis of amine and phenyl terminally functionalized nanomaterials: silicon dioxide, calcium carbonate and carbon nanomaterials will be performed.
