Research Overview

Green nanoscience, pioneered at the University of Oregon, applies the principles of green chemistry to nanoscience in order to rationally design safe, yet high-performance, nanoscale materials, develop efficient and inexpensive manufacturing approaches to these materials, and incorporate nanoscale materials into high-performance microscale or larger devices. This approach will simultaneously meet society's need for high-performance materials while protecting human health and minimizing harm to the environment. 

At SNNI, we conduct basic research in nanoparticle chemistry to provide a strong foundation for innovation. For more information, visit our projects page.
