Catalytic “MOF-Cloth” Formed via Directed Supramolecular Assembly of UiO-66-NH2 Crystals on Atomic Layer Deposition-Coated Textiles for Rapid Degradation of Chemical Warfare Agent Simulants Chemistry of Materials Dennis Lee’s work creating catalytic metal-organic framework materials, termed “MOF-Cloth”, for rapid degradation of chemical warfare agent (CWA) simulants has been featured in Nanowerk News and ACS Press Pacs.
Members of the group are pictured volunteering at NanoDays. NanoDays showcases nanoscale science and engineering to the public and students. It is seen as a highly effective way to encourage students to consider STEM careers.
Professor Parsons has been selected to receive the Alumni Association Distinguished Graduate Professorship Award for 2017! The award, which recognizes outstanding graduate level teaching and mentoring, will be presented at the 2017 Faculty Awards and Mathews Medal Ceremony on April 26. Congratulations Dr. Parsons! Thank you for everything you do for your students!
Researchers have created a fabric material containing nanoscale fibers that are capable of degrading chemical warfare agents (CWAs). Scientists from North Carolina State University (NCSU), RTI International and the Edgewood Chemical Biological Center synthesized uniform coatings of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) on top of the nanofibers to form unique “kebab-like” structures. These MOFs break down the […]
