The Brutchey Group @ USC

 

Welcome to the Brutchey Group in the Department of Chemistry at USC.  Our goal is to develop new solution phase synthesis routes to functional nanocrystals using rational chemical design principles.  We aim to obtain hierarchical synthetic control over the structure of the nanocrystals – from the core of the particle (including its composition, size, and shape) to its surface chemistry (via modification with organic functionality and/or metal complexes).  These functional nanocrystals are being applied to a wide range of applications, including solar energy conversion, energy storage, catalysis, and biomedical applications.  Please come inside to see who we are and what we are working on . . .
