Synthesis of novel inorganic nanomaterials

Vladimir Kolesnichenko, a University of New Orleans research specialist with the nanomaterials team of Louisiana's micro- and nanotechnologies consortium for advanced physical, chemical and biological sensors, is shown preparing a precursor material for use in the synthesis of novel inorganic nanomaterials. These materials are sensitive to moisture and oxygen in the air and must be synthesized and handled in a glove box where the atmosphere can be controlled.

This work was supported by the Louisiana EPSCoR (Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) under a grant from the National Science Foundation EPSCoR Program.
