Research Interests:

Catalysis, adsorption, and materials design. There are currently seven major areas of sponsored research in the laboratory:

1. Partial oxidation reactions over hybrid (organic/inorganic) Ti-containing gels
2. Synthesis of inorganic oxide materials with tailored porosities and well-defined (catalytically active) metal particle sizes using macromolecular templates
3. Design of zeolite- and amorphous silica/cellulose composites for separation applications
4. Molecularly imprinted inorganic, and hybrid (organic/inorganic) oxides
5. Design of macroporous supports for immobilized enzymes utilized in reactions involving bulky biomolecules (with H. Noureddini, Dept. of Chemical & Biomolecular Eng., UNL)
6. Design of catalytic nanofibers based on electrospinning of sol-gels (with Y. Dzenis, Engineering Mechanics Dept., UNL.)
7. Computational chemistry of alkoxides and alcogel formation
