Performing a Bench-top Synthesis

Jessica Sims, a University of New Orleans graduate student working with the nanomaterials team of the micro- and nanotechnologies consortium for advanced physical, chemical and biological sensors, is shown performing a bench-top synthesis to prepare metallic core-shell nanoparticles using the reverse micelle technique. This work was supported by the Louisiana EPSCoR (Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) project under a grant from the National Science Foundation EPSCoR program.
