Mercator Seminars


Prof. Sara Skrabalak is the James H. Rudy Professor at Indiana University (IU), USA. She develops general design criteria and strategies for the synthesis of new materials from particles with controlled size distributions, crystal shape, composition and overall architecture. The assessment of structure-property correlations and the development of scalable routes to nanomaterials play a central role in her work.

The seminars are organised in a block-lecture format and will take place every Wednesday in October 2020 at 4 pm (CET) according to the following calendar:

7th October 2020
A Tutorial on Nanoparticle Synthesis: Control of Particle Size, Shape, and Composition
14th October 2020
A Tutorial on the Applications of Metal Nanocrystals
21st October 2020
Multimetallic Nanocrystals by Design​ for Plasmonics and Catalysis
28th October 2020
Aerosol-Assisted Synthesis of Shape-Controlled Nanocrystals
