Welcome to Nelson Research Lab

Professor Nelson’s research interests are organic materials, C-H functionalization, green chemistry, Melanins, organic semiconductors. His research focuses on the design and synthesis of organic materials via green methods such as green solvent usage, C-H functionalization and solvent free techniques like high-speed ball-milled reactions. His research rogram covers design and synthesis of organic semiconductors, polymer chemistry, supramolecular materials, green chemistry and development of bioinpired materials, organic electronics, biosensors and bioelectronics. His current research interest emphasizes on the development of new bioinspired organic semiconductors based on the natural pigment, Eumelanin.
