Grad student’s talk in ACS Nanomaterials session wins ‘best presentation’

Congratulations to Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering graduate student Ajit Vikram!

Vikram’s recent talk won “best presentation” during the nanomaterials session at the American Chemical Society’s national meeting in Boston.

His talk was titled, “Continuous flow synthesis of semiconductor nanoparticles using a modular millifluidic platform.”

Vikram, a member of the Kenis Lab, focuses his research on developing flow reactor platforms for synthesis of heavy-metal free quantum dots for applications in next-generation display technologies.

“We have developed a modular flow reactor platform that allows precise control over reaction conditions, thus enabling manufacturing of quantum dots with high fluorescent properties,” he said.

The work presented at the ACS meeting is a collaborative research effort between the Kenis Group in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, the Shim Research Group in Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Dow Chemical Company.

Congratulations Ajit!
