Welcome to the Advanced Inorganic & Synthetic Materials Lab
Our research lab focuses on the synthesis of light and moisture structurally stabilized polystannanes and quaternary onium antimicrobials for glass, metals, and plastics.
We are always looking to recruit undergraduate thesis students, graduate students at the MSc or PhD level, post-doctoral fellows, or volunteers. If you are interested in pursuing one of these positions with this lab, please contact Dr. Daniel Foucher.
