Materials & Nanoscience

Research in materials chemistry disregards the barriers between chemistry's traditional sub-disciplines and combines organic, inorganic, polymer, physical, biological, and analytical chemistry. Materials researchers in chemistry benefit tremendously from interactions with those in other departments and research centers at the Institute.
