Welcome to the Molecular Nanotechnology Lab, a research group devoted to the synthesis, characterization and application of advanced nanomaterials.
We work at the crossroads of materials chemistry, nanotechnology and chemical engineering to produce novel materials for a wide range of applications, from catalysis to energy production and storage.
Using a hybrid silica sol-gel material and self-assembled monolayers of a common fatty acid, researchers have developed a new capacitor dielectric material that provides an[…]
Researchers report that they have developed a simple electrochemical approach which allows defects to intentionally be created in the graphene, altering its electrical and mechanical[…]
Graphene has been called the miracle material but the single-atomic layer material is still seeking its place in the materials world. Now a method to[…]
The art of kirigami involves cutting paper into intricate designs, like snowflakes. Cornell physicists are kirigami artists, too, but their paper is only an atom[…]
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has requested $7 million in funding for a new center focused on nanotechnology in consumer products.
There has been much confusion and misinformation in recent weeks about our Consumer Products Inventory (CPI). Much of this confusion was sparked by a recent[…]
