Foudazi Nanoemulsion work funded by The American Chemical Society

Dr. Reza Foudazi has been granted $110,000 by The American Chemical Society to study nanoemulsions.  In this work, nanoemulsions of water in an organic phase will be prepared with different droplet sizes, volume fractions and extents of ordering. Polymerization of the continuous phase will result in the formation of nanoporous polymers. The proposed nanoemulsion templating…
