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 […]
Our group continues to expand the applications of ALD to real world applications. See the link below on the U.S. Army site that outlines the work we are doing. https://www.army.mil/article/157093/Natick_researcher_collaborates_with_North_Carolina_State_on_textile_technologies/
NanoDays 2016 took NC State’s Centennial Campus by storm, with hundreds of students eager to learn more about science and engineering. The Parsons group had some fun and interesting tabletop science demonstrations for middle and high school students (who came from all over the Triangle area). James used a lemon battery and some tungsten coated fibers […]
Prof. Parsons has been selected as an inaugural member of the NC State University Research Leadership Academy! In addition to being selected for the Research Leadership Academy, Parsons also is receiving the Alumni Association Outstanding Research Award.
Junjie’s talk, titled “When Metal-organic Frameworks meet Atomic Layer Deposition”, wins 2nd place in the oral presentation competition at the Schoenborn Graduate Research Symposium. Congrats Junjie!
