Nicholas Stadie (Montana State University - Chemistry and Biochemistry)

Our research spans the fields of solid-state, physical, and materials chemistry. We explore new synthesis routes toward structurally and chemically tunable carbon-based materials with a chief interest in their application for energy storage. Contributing fundamental insights into gas physisorption phenomena at the solid interface is also a goal of our work, using classical equilibrium thermodynamics and statistical mechanics.
