The Center for Sustainable Materials Chemistry

The Center for Sustainable Materials Chemistry is a Phase-II Center for Chemical Innovation sponsored by the National Science Foundation. Collaborative research in materials chemistry is carried out across six academic institutions – Oregon State University (Center headquarters), University of Oregon, Washington University at St Louis, Rutgers University, University of California Davis, and University of California Berkeley.

High School student wins International award

As we reported in 2011, Mr. Anirudh Jain contacted SNNI requesting help to characterize his silver nanoparticles for a middle school science competition. In a voicemail to us, he explained that he made silver nanoparticles for a water filtration device and would like help characterizing his silver nanoparticles using a transmisson electron micrscope.

ONAMI Wins Prestigious National Award for technology-based economic development

Skip Rung appointed to the NSF SBIR/STTR advisory committee

Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute (ONAMI) was one of six organizations named winners of SSTI’s 2012 Excellence in TBED award, serving as national models for states and regions investing in science, technology and innovation to grow their economies and create high-paying jobs.

GN12: Nanoinformatics Tools and Resources Workshop

SNNI is sponsoring the Nanoinformatics Tools and Resources Workshop in Portland, Oregon on July 30, 2012 at the Courtyard Marriott Portland City Center.

SNNI Researchers launch new line of industrial micro mixers

Microflow CVO,TM  a company spun off from research in the Oregon State University Microproducts Breakthrough Institute (MBI), has launched its first product line of stainless steel micromixers.

New Measuring Techniques Can Improve Efficiency, Safety of Nanoparticles

Using high-precision microscopy and X-ray scattering techniques, University of Oregon researchers have gained eye-opening insights into the process of applying green chemistry to nanotechnology that results in high yields, improves efficiency and dramatically reduces waste and potential negative exposure to human health or the environment.

New Labs for Integrative Science at UO

A new facility dedicated to integrative science activities at the University of Oregon is now under construction. The Lewis Integrative Science Building is slated for completion by fall 2012 and will house facilities for nanotechnology, solar energy, neuroscience, and molecular biology research. Check out the construction webcam and find out more about the research and researchers on the integrative science website.

CSMC Webinar on Intellectual Property

The Center for Sustainable Materials Chemistry hosts the first in its webinar series: Intellectual Property, Tech Transfer and YOU on February 2, 2012 from 12:00pm-1:00pm Pacific Standard Time (3:00pm-4:00pm Eastern Standard Time)

Silver Nanoparticles are more common than we thought!

If you've used silverware and worn copper jewelry in a warm, humid room, you've been in a perfect storm in which nanoparticles were dropped into the environment, say scientists at the University of Oregon.

Ever since nanotechnology emerged, researchers, regulators and the public have been concerned about the potential toxicity of the residual materials from nano-sized products that that might threaten human health by way of environmental exposure.
