This course teaches the basics of product design for modern chemical products being designed throughout the chemical, biochemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, electronics, agrochemicals, foods, and similar industries – using some of the latest software for chemical product design. It focuses on innovation; taking new technologies from R&D and creating new products to satisfy the needs of consumers. What products might evolve from your research?

Homework: Graded homework assignments to illustrate concepts
Term Project: Each student will carry out a small term project. It does not involve carrying out a product design project. Instead, it emphasizes how a new product has evolved and its likely future directions. Possible products include growth of Si crystals for chips; conversion of CO2 (decarbonization) to high-value chemical products (e.g., omega-3 fatty acids); plastics upcycling to high-value proteins; hemp to nutraceuticals; waste foods to biogas and electricity)
Intended For: Graduate students (first year especially), CBE juniors and seniors
