Dale’s research is centered around the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials. There is a particular emphasis on inorganic nanoparticles and polymeric nanofilms, and nanocomposites formed from these building blocks. Current activities include the synthesis of magnetic nanoparticles including iron, iron oxides and alloys, surface initiated polymerizations, synthesis of novel surfactants, thermally responsive polymeric materials, nanocomposites, and a range of self-assembly phenomena.Selected Publications:
