CMP Winter Synthesis Workshop

Join the CMP on December 12 and 13 for a focus on synthesizing materials using the Steric Entrapment Synthesis of Oxide Powders Technique in JIAM 230.

During this hands-on workshop we will be using the technique pioneered by Prof. Waltraud Kriven from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Prof. Kriven’s group has made a wide variety of oxide compounds in this manner over the last 20 years, and she was kind enough to provide us with a list of materials to help us get started.

We hope to create the solutions and evaporate the water on the first day and fire the samples on the second day. Please come prepared with whatever nitrates you need for your synthesis and the CMP will provide the PVA and equipment.

RSVP to Amber White by Monday, December 9.
