The Brutchey Group @ USC

 

Welcome to the Brutchey Group in the Department of Chemistry at USC.  Our goal is to develop new, low-temperature solution phase synthesis routes to functional nanocrystals using rational chemical design principles.  We aim to obtain hierarchical synthetic control over the structure of 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 . . .
