New Patent Granted!

Our lab's newest patent has been approved, US 10,695,831 B2 is our second granted Core/Alloy Nanopartcle patent, demonstrating the uniqeness of approach towards using synthetic inorganic nanochemistry to prepare steel at the nanoscale. 

Congrats Tina!

Congratulations to Christina Deschene for defending her Renee Crown Honors Thesis, her Distinction in Chemistry Thesis, and for graduating early with a dual B.S. in Chemistry & Forensics. Good luck Tina!!

2019 NERM Meeting

A great ACS NERM Meeting in June. The Maye group had 11 presentations in total, with excellent talks by Emily, Yuetian, and Dr. Maye, along with great posters by Hediyeh, Buddhini, and Tina! 

2018 ACS Meeting


The Maye lab will have a number of presentations at this summers ACS National Meeting in Boston. Both Emily and Yuetian will be presenting:

Yuetian Chen*, "COLL 194 + Sci-Mix: Chemical and Structural Analysis of the Surface of Quantum Rods" (LINK)

Emily G. Ripka* "COLL 198 + Sci-Mix: CsPbX3 Ligand Binding Dynamics: A 2D Diffusion and Relaxation NMR Study" (LINK)

Emily G. Ripka* "PHYS 479: Monitoring Catalysis of Organohalide Reactions with Perovskite Nanoparticle Surfaces" (LINK)

Cover Article

Our collaboration with Dr. Mircea Cotlet at BNL on studying energy transfer between nano-perovskite's and 1D surfaces was recently the feature cover article in Particle. (LINK) In this project, our lab designed and synthesized a number of CsPbX3 particles, which were combined with MoS2 and graphene in the Cotlet lab and charge transfer (electron and hole) was studied using single molecule spectroscopy.
