CHME - Catalytic Sorbent Materials

Catalytic & Sorbent Materials

Dr. Larsen's group works on a variety of projects related to catalysis, adsorption, and nanostructured materials design. By means of micro- and nano-fabrication methods based on electrohydrodynamic forces, we are currently designing nanocapsules, nanotubes, and nanofibers of inorganic, hybrid (organic/inorganic), organic, and biological materials for a variety of applications.

Specifically, these submicron structures can be utilized for preparing nanovesicles for controlled release applications, reinforced composites, sorbents and catalysts, and tissue scaffolds. Being highly interdisciplinary, some of the work is done in collaboration with faculty and professionals affiliated with several foreign and domestic academic institutions and industry.
