Research involves

Understanding, creating, and assembling new nanomaterials that are multi-functional.

Research relevance

This research will lead to better nanomaterials that will promote innovation in surface materials as well as areas like catalysis and filtration.

Research summary

Nanomaterials are omnipresent in our daily lives thanks to the extraordinary properties resulting from their tiny size. When various ingredients are injected into plasma, the nanostructures can produce kilograms of multifunctional nanomaterials. In addition to retaining their individual properties, these nanomaterials develop additional ones as a result of their synergy. The objective of the Canada Research Chair in Multifunctional Nanomaterials is to develop large-scale synthesis methods, design innovative methods for characterizing at nano levels, and apply them to solving complex issues, such as catalysis.
