Musselman, Inga H.
Inga H. Musselman serves as an Associate Provost of the university and a professor in the Department of Chemistry. She is also an affiliated faculty member in the Alan G. MacDiarmid NanoTech Institute. Dr. Musselman’s research interests include developing microscopy methods and applying them to the study of materials structure. She investigates the fundamentals of image contrast in scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and applies scanning probe and electron microscopy techniques to the study of polymer microstructure. Her recent research has focused on:
- Mechanisms of contrast and limits of contrast resolution in scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) images of molecular adsorbates
- Peptide/single-walled carbon nanotube interactions explored using STM and atomic force microscopy (AFM)
- Fabrication and testing of polymer-based mixed-matrix membranes for gas separations
- Development and testing of high temperature proton exchange membranes for fuel cells

(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-04-16)Herein, we describe a versatile immunoassay that uses biotinylated single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) as a Raman label, avidin-biotin chemistry to link targeting ligands to the label, and confocal Raman microscopy to ...
Modifying the Electronic Properties of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes using Designed Surfactant Peptides (2012-05-25)The electronic properties of carbon nanotubes can be altered significantly by modifying the nanotube surface. In this study, single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) were functionalized noncovalently using designed surfactant ...
