Andrey Shults recipient of VINSE Best Collaborative Paper Award
VINSE is excited to announce Andrey Shults is the recipient of the VINSE Best Collaborative Paper award. Andrey’s paper has contributions from two VINSE groups from different departments – the Macdonald group in Chemistry and the Caldwell group in Mechanical Engineering. The authors report on colloidal chemistry synthesis and characterization that provides key insights for the rational and targeted synthesis of metal sulfide nanoparticles. This paper was published in Nanoscale Horizons, which is the highest tier “Nano” journal in The Royal Society of Chemistry family of journals. It is being included in a virtual issue from the RSC’s Nanoscale journals celebrating Vanderbilt’s sesquicentennial. The VINSE Best Collaborative Paper award comes with a cash prize and a celebratory dinner for all contributing authors.
