My research field or area of interest innanotechnology
I have current projects in four areas:
(1) Nanosynthesis - core shell particles for SERS,
(2) Catalysis - hydrochlorination of ethylene studied with a combination of STM, AFM, XPS
(3) Photocatalysis - alcohol reforming, water splitting
(4) Proective phosphate films
Nanoscience, surface chemistry, catalysis, catalytic mechanism, new materials, photocatalysis. Anything new and exciting!

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.
There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!
Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
