Andreas Stein

Andreas Stein is the Distinguished McKnight Professor of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota and was named one of the 100 Top Materials Scientists in the World, 2000-2010 by Thompson Reuters. After earning his Ph.D. degree in 1991, Andreas joined the Advanced Inorganic Materials at Bayer A.G. in Germany as an NSERC postdoctoral fellow, followed by postdoctoral research with Professor Tom Mallouk at both the University of Texas, Austin, and at Penn State University. His research interests are in the field of solid state chemistry, in particular porous materials and nanocomposites. His program has pioneered research on the compositional and structural control of templated mesoporous and macroporous sieves, nanoparticle shaping, open-framework structures, and polymer/inorganic nanocomposites.  He is the recipient of numerous awards and recognitions, including a Merck Professorship in Chemistry, a 3M Faculty Grant, a Dupont Young Professor Grant, an NSF CAREER Award, a McKnight Land-Grant Professorship, and a prestigious David & Lucile Packard Fellowship. He is on the Editorial Advisory Boards for Advanced Functional Materials and Particles & Particle Systems Characterization and has been on the Editorial Advisory Board for Chemistry of Materials.

Like adding a pinch of salt to enhance a dish, it only takes a pinch of our additive and two important ingredients to toughen brittle polymer system: the strength of graphene and the right interfacial chemistry.
