Recent Research Highlights

Molecular Scale Au Nanowires

We reported the first synthesis of molecular scale Au nanowires (Adv. mater. 2007) by a simple wet chemical method. Currently we are exploring in interrogating the transport properties of individual wires and for possible applications of such wires.

2-D Nanostructures

We have developed morphology diagrams to predict the conditions under which 2-D nanostructures form. We have applied these principles to rationalize the plate-shaped structure of the inorganic part of bone.

Nanoporous Catalysts

By controlled aggregation of nanoparticles in solution phase, we have developed methods for forming high surface area catalysts for fuel cell applications
