Enabling a next-generation of sustainable transformations with designer nanoparticles
We are headed to developing nanomaterials capable of overcoming current challenges in nanocatalysis and plasmonics. We target facile solution-phase approaches to metal based nanostructures containing Ag, Au, Pd and/or Pt displaying well-defined and controllable sizes, shape, structure (solid vs. hollow) and composition/surface distribution for applications in nanocatalysis and plasmonic photocatalysis. As the properties of a nanostructure are related to these parameters, their control offers a unique opportunity to maximize/optimize performance in terms of activity (substrate conversion) and selectivity. We have open positions for postdoctoral researchers and graduate students! Please contact Prof. Pedro Camargo at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
