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.
Scientists have revealed that feather shafts are made of a multi-layered fibrous composite material, much like carbon fibre, which allows the feather to bend and[…]
Researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine and School of Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia have used graphene—a[…]
In a design that mimics a hard-to-duplicate texture of starfish shells, University of Michigan engineers have made rounded crystals that have no facets.
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[…]
The updated Nanotechnology Consumer Products Inventory now contains 1,628 consumer products that have been introduced to the market since 2005, representing a 24 percent increase[…]
