Gorman Group at North Carolina State University

Nanoscale Materials Chemistry

The Gorman group research interests include:

  • Synthesis of new molecular, macromolecular, supramolecular and fabricated architectures on the nanometer length scale that are designed to display new behaviors.
  • Investigation as to how structure controls properties using a variety of analytical characterization technique

Our current research activities in the group can be broadly divided into three main areas:

  • Synthesis of new conducting polymer architectures and their use in all organic circuits
  • Synthesis and characterization of polymers on surfaces that display dynamic behaviors
  • Synthesis of new drug delivery vehicles that are tailored to permeate challenging, biological boundaries
