Home / People

Nicholas A. Kotov, Ph.D., is working on conceptual foundations and technical realizations of biomimetic nanostructures. Examples of biomimetic nanostructures associated with his works include graphite oxide,- graphene- and clay-based layered biomimetic nanocomposites, chiral nanomaterials, and omni dispersible colloids. His contributions to technology include ultra-strong nacre-mimetic nanocomposites, soft neuro-prosthetic implants, 3D tissue replicas for drug-testing, chiral biosensors, and cartilage-like electrolytes for batteries. Prof. Kotov is a founder of several start-up companies that commercialized bioinspired nanomaterials for biomedical, energy, and automotive technologies.
