We synthesize nanomaterials and study their fundamental chemistry, photochemistry, electrochemistry, optical, and
biomaterials properties. Our emphasis is on porous silicon and iron oxide nanostructures. Research topics include drug delivery
materials, in-vivo imaging with luminescent or magnetic nanoparticles, batteries, and chemical or biochemical sensors.

Prof. Sailor's book "Porous Silicon in Practice" is now available from Wiley-VCH or from
