WELCOME TO the Surface & interface lab at csulb!
Our research centers on the interdisciplinary area of surface and interface chemistry of solid materials. Two major research directions in our lab are: 1) Study fundamental properties and chemical reactivities of nano-structured solid hybrid materials for energy and environmental applications; and 2) design surface-supportive porous metal-organic frameworks for drug delivery. We are also interested in designing biocompatible coatings with polymer-free porous materials.
