This course is intended to introduce the basics of symmetry and crystal chemistry to a wide audience, and aims to give a brief insight into general terms of crystal structure description. During this course, we will introduce you to the primary terms and general concepts of crystallography and crystal chemistry, used by chemists and physicists all over the world.
At the end of this course, you will understand:
- Translational and rotational symmetry in crystals.
- Guidelines of crystal structure description.
- General concepts of crystallography and crystal chemistry.
- Discussion of isostructural and isomorphous compounds.
Target Audience: The course has been developed for high school students and bachelor’s degree students. It will be of particular interest to those studying chemistry, physics, material’s science, geology and mineralogy.
Course is offered by Samara University.
