Garfunkel, Eric

Garfunkel's group uses state-of-the-art surface characterization tools to investigate the compositions and properties of various nanocatalysts. His recent collaborative effort with Asefa's group involves investigation of compositions and structures of active catalytic sites of Pd nanoparticle/Nanoporous Silica core-shell nanocatalysts and the use of atomic layer deposition to make various core-shell nanostructures.
