Nanochemistry

NANOCHEMISTRY RESEARCH GROUP

The NANOCHEMISTRY RESEARCH GROUP at the INL focuses on the development of nanomaterials following the strategy CSI: Catalysis, Synthesis and Investigation.

Our vision

Developing and realizing creative and interdisciplinary concepts in the area of nanomaterials

We explore nanochemistry for the development and characterization of advanced catalytic, adsorption, thermoelectric, and electronic materials, addressing key challenges in clean water, low-carbon economy, and clean energy technology. We use a diverse range of methods, combining creative chemistry with cutting-edge nanofabrication.

We aim at understanding fundamental aspects of the synthesized nanoscale objects, specifically finite-size, surface and confinement effects, chemical doping, as well as their formation, nucleation and crystal growth. As experimentalists, we are also interested in testing the limitations of computational prediction.
