Research Interests

The Glover Research Group studies adsorbent materials, fibers functionalized with nanostructures, and related surface chemistry.  The Group has expertise building novel adsorbents, such as MOFs, carbons, and composites, and works to characterize both the thermodynamic capacities and mass transfer properties of these materials.  The Group’s work on fibers has focused on functionalizing both natural and synthetic fibers with gold, nanoparticles, quantum dots, MOFs, and other structures.
