Areas of Interests: My research interest is in the field of chemistry of materials and its environmental and energy applications. My research projects include: (1) developing novel metal-organic framework structures as energy storage and distribution devices. (2) developing environmentally friendly nano-scaled fire-retardant additives. (3) template-effect of bio-molecules in the synthesis of nano-particles.

Areas of Interests: Dr. Parkinson's research interests are in two areas: 1) the extraction of trace level metals, vocs and contaminants from aquatic systems, and 2) the study of metal binding through preparation and characterization of novel organophosphorus ligands. Both chemistries emphasize the use and development of analytical spectroscopy (GC/MS, nD-NMR, FTIR) and SPME-hyphenated techniques.
