Development and Applications of templated syntheses of micro,
meso and nanostructured materials. Surfactants and polymers which
self-organize are being used as templates to control the structure of
materials on length scales between micrometers and nanometers. Electrodeposition
into such self-organizing yields metal meso and microstructures of a variety
of forms. Such structures are of interest for applications including information
storage, fuel cells, electrocatalysis, electrochemical sensors and ultracapacitors.
Characterization of the structures is primarily through AFM, SEM and TEM.
For electrochemical and related applications cyclic voltametry and similar
characterization methods are used.
Application of spectroscopic techniques, particularly Electron Paramagnetic
Resonance (EPR) and Fluorescence Spectroscopies to the study of chemical
reaction mechanisms, determination of the structure of transient species
and to molecular motion and dynamic processes. Techniques utilized include
EPR, Time-Resolved EPR, Electron Nuclear Double Resonance and Fluorescence.
