About us


We are working on the chemical design of novel functional materials for applications in electronics, photonics, sensors and energy storage. Such materials include graphene, carbon nanotubes, inorganic nanowires, colloidal particles, macroporous oxides and some others. Our strategy is to control the structure and composition of these materials at nanoscale to define their properties.

A graduate or postdoctoral student in my group can expect to receive training in inorganic chemistry and materials science with significant exposure to one or more of the following specialties: low-dimensional nanomaterialscarbon nanomaterials (carbon nanotubes and graphene)self-assembly techniqueschemical vapor deposition, andmaterials characterization techniques, such as electron microscopy,atomic force microscopynanoscale device fabrication and electrical measurements. Our laboratory is well equipped with excellent Research Facilities.

Graduate students: Prospective graduate students are welcome to e-mail Prof. Sinitskii for more information about ongoing research projects or apply to the Chemistry Graduate Program.
Undergraduates: Interested sophomores or juniors are very welcome to visit our lab and learn more about our research.
Postdoctoral Associates: A postdoc position is now open for our graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) project. Read more… .
