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.
Researchers have discovered a previously unknown mechanism for wear in metals: a swirling, fluid-like microscopic behavior in a solid piece of metal sliding over another.
