About Dr. Charpentier's Research Group

Dr. Charpentier's main area of research is in developing new “green nanotechnologies” for environmentally-friendly and alternative energy applications. Our group enjoys working with industry on problems which lead to developing new areas in basic science and applying them to real world applications. Research is being carried out in several key areas to develop novel nanomaterials and nanomedicines synthesized using green enabling solvents such as supercritical carbon dioxide and ionic liquids for emerging applications. These novel materials formed using techniques in polymer synthesis, self-assembly and particle design have applications in many areas including solar devices, catalytic and biomedical applications.
