Welcome to the Nanostructured Materials Research Laboratory

Located in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Nanostructured Materials Research Laboratory (NMRL) focuses on the processing of nanostructured materials which have unique microstructure and exceptional size-dependent properties. We seek to exploit the technological potential of this class of materials through our ability to tailor materials for novel catalytic, sensors, membranes, structural, electric, magnetic, and biomaterials applications. By tying together chemical engineering principles, surface chemistry and materials science, we seek to understand the process chemistry and structural physics of nanocrystalline, nanoporous and microemulsion systems.
