Robert Tanguay – We collaborate closely with the Tanguay laboratory within the Environmental and Molecular Toxicology program at Oregon State University on studies of the biological impacts of precisely engineered nanoparticles as part of the Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing Initiative and as part of a W.M. Keck funded project.
Nanoscale Open Research Initiative (NORI) – Research in the Hutchison lab provided the basis for the establishment of a joint UO-Sony research laboratory within the Lokey Laboratories. NORI’s research focus is on nanomaterials for energy and environmental applications.
Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing Initiative (SNNI) – Professor Hutchison founded and directs the SNNI, a multi-university research initiative focused on developing greener nanomaterials, nanomanufacturing processes and applications. Faculty, staff and students from UO, OSU, PSU and PNNL make up an interdisciplinary team that includes biologists, chemists, physicists and engineers.
Richard Taylor – We have worked with the Taylor group to study electron transport through self-assembled nanoparticle arrays.
Nike – Members of the lab have worked with Nike through the Green Product Design Network to evaluate the use of emerging technologies in Nike’s products.
Oregon Environmental Council (OEC) – Professor Hutchison has worked with a multi-stakeholder group including academic, industry, state leaders and OEC to develop a green chemistry action plan for Oregon.
Steve Kevan – Members of the lab have worked with Steve Kevan at the Advanced Light Source at LBNL to study nanoparticle growth in capillary flow reactors using small angle x-ray scattering (SAXS).
Green chemistry – Professor Hutchison and the members of the Hutchison Lab have worked with members of the UO chemistry department to develop green chemistry educational materials and with dozens of educators across the nation to support a greener chemistry curriculum. Professor Hutchison collaborated with Professor Ken Doxsee to write the first undergraduate green chemistry textbook “Green Organic Chemistry: Strategies, Tools, and Laboratory Experiments”.
Center for Workshops in the Chemical Sciences (CWCS) – We partner with CWCS to deliver our annual Green Chemistry in Education Workshops. Over the course of ten years we’ve hosted 200 college and university educators. Of those educators over half of them have implemented significant amounts of green chemistry in their curriculum and have influenced more than 30,000 students through their efforts.
Keck Foundation – Professor Hutchison leads a group of biologists, chemists and toxicologists in the pursuit of new knowledge regarding the influence of nanomaterial structure on biological effects. UO professors Mark Lonergan, Andy Berglund, Karen Guillemin and Eric Johnson and OSU professor Tanguay are the chief collaborators under this initiative.
Green Product Design Network – Professor Hutchison is one of the leaders of a broad interdisciplinary team aimed at accelerating the translation of green products into the marketplace. The team includes chemists, materials scientists, product designers, experts in sustainable business practices, and communicators with expertise in communications and greenwashing.
Voxtel’s Nanophotonics Division – We collaborated with Voxtel Nano to develop new nanomaterials with novel optical properties.
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) – Members of the Hutchison lab have had a number of productive collaborative projects with scientists at PNNL. Our project on malonamide chemistry derived from a collaboration with Ben Hay, Gregg Lumetta and Brian Rapko. More recently, we’ve worked with Shane Addleman, Marvin Warner and Gayla Orr on the Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing Initiative.
Paul Weiss, UCLA – We have collaborated with the Weiss group on a number of projects focused on imaging phase separated molecular films on surfaces, measuring the effects of monolayers that influence the electronic properties of embedded conductive molecules and studying electron transport through surface-bound nanoparticles.
Andy Berglund – The Hutchison and Berglund groups have collaborated during the last several years to investigate the use of RNA aptamers to control the shape of nanoparticles during growth.
