Use of Arrested Micro-emulsions for Drug Delivery and Gas Separation Applications.

The project will explore design of materials using nanostructured glasses for which a patent has been filed. An incoming student can take the project towards design of structured nanocomposites for specific applications including membrane for gas separation and controlled drug delivery. Other experiments will be based on tools required to characterize the rheology, microstructure and the phase diagrams of these materials and design of materials.
