Recent work involving Vishnu Sresht, Ananth Govind Rajan, and Professor Daniel Blankschtein was featured on the cover of The Journal of Physical Chemistry C. Congratulations!

This work involved the development of a molecular dynamics (MD)-based framework, using lattice dynamics calculations, and validated using electronic structure density functional theory, to accurately predict the contact angle of water on the MoS2 basal plane. The resulting model was then used to predict the efficacy of various solvents for the liquid-phase exfoliation and dispersion of MoS2.
