Randall E. Winans

Argonne Associate, Division Emeritus


Randall Winans and coworkers have developed and applied methods to understand the fundamental chemistry of complex disordered systems, such as catalysts, soot, coals, heavy petroleum, and carbons.

Chemistry is combined with characterization techniques, including mass spectrometry, NMR, and small angle X-ray scattering and spectroscopy.
