Nanomaterials for catalysis and plasmonics

Controlling size, composition, structure, and surface morphology

We aim at developing facile and environmentally friendly solution-phase approaches to produce metal based nanostructures containing Ag, Au, Pd and/or Pt displaying well defined and controllable sizes, shape, structure (solid vs. hollow) and composition/surface distribution for applications in catalysis and plasmonics. As the properties of a nanostructure are related to these parameters, their control offer an unique opportunity to tailor the properties and thus maximize/optimize performances.
