Nanoparticle & Core-Shell Nanoparticle

nanoparticle core shelThe properties of nanomaterials whose sizes are only a few billionths of a meter have unique properties that are neither bulk nor molecular and can be tuned via the size, shape, and structure of the materials. We are interested in the synthesis and self-assembly of inorganic and core-shell nanoparticles having new structures. By introducing multifunctional organic, organometallic, or biological groups into such nanostructured materials, we create new classes of nanomaterials with unprecedented and potentially useful properties for nanoelectronics, sensing, biological imaging, and targeted drug delivery.
