Check our out most recent paper in Chemistry of Materials

Our most recent paper was recently published in Chemistry of Materials.  Students Pralav Shetty and Runyu Zhang (Braun group) collaborated to develop scalable, economic and thermally stable inverse opal structures through aluminization of electrodeposited Ni.  This work is closely related to our efforts to modify the surface chemistry of structural alloys in the oil and gas industry to mitigate carbonaceous deposits.
