Graphene Implementation in Everyday Life
Ever since its first discovery, graphene has been touted as a wonder material. One of the strongest materials in existence, graphene has much potential for a wide variety of applications due to its superior features enabled by it being a zero band gap semiconductor. Do you think it is possible for graphene to be truly implemented in various applications based on the research where it stands? This project could either be a paper review and prediction to the future, or choosing one of the properties of graphene to study further.
Producing Polymer Colloids
Colloids are particles in a size range of 1 nm to 1 µm with a high surface area per unit mass. Colloidal particles have been used in various applications such as pharmaceuticals, catalysis, surface science, nano-composites, and printing. In spite of such a wide usage for colloids, it is challenging to continuously produce colloidal particles in a large volume. This project could seek to optimize the conditions for concentration and type of solvent to produce unimodally distributed polymer colloids.
