Nanostructures in catalysis and health
What makes a material interesting? A “material”, something with a known and reproducible chemical composition only becomes interesting when it does something important, useful, desirable or with significant value added. A material is only as good or useful as the applications we can find for it.
The team led by Scaiano studies light-matter interactions in relations to materials: synthesis of materials using light, steering of chemical reactions (including catalysis) using light, light as a diagnostic or therapeutic agent in medicine. Several teams in Science, Engineering and Medicine contribute to these common goals.
