Edward Van Keuren

Work in the Van Keuren lab is focused on the study of the nucleation and growth of nanoparticles in solution. They use precipitation methods to induce a high level of supersaturation in a solution and observe the formation of nanoparticles using a number of methods, including dynamic light scattering, absorption, fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy and electron microscopy. These observations are used to develop and refine models of molecular aggregation/self-assembly.
