Wayne State to host nano seminarGreat Lakes IT Report
Wayne State University's Office of the Vice President for Research will host another event in its "Nano@Wayne" Seminar Series May 2 at 2:30 p.m. The event, in the Welcome Center Auditorium, will feature Catherine Murphy, professor of chemistry at the University of South Carolina. In her talk, "Synthesis, Assembly and Reactivity of Metallic Nanorods," Murphy will cover her research group's work on metallic nanorods and their electronic and optical properties. Her research group has developed a relatively cheap and green method for making silver and gold nanoparticles of controlled size and shape, using aqueous solutions at room temperature. The seminar is free and open to the public.
