David Peyton

Professor of Chemistry, Portland State University


Microtechnology-Based Energy and Chemical Systems, Nanoscale Metrology and Nanoelectronics, Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing

Research Interests

Dr. Peyton’s research ranges from characterization of structures to dynamics of nanoscale biological structures, including fibrous and globular proteins. Other work involves characterizing chemical states of molecules in aerosol particles, including tobacco smoke.

Another main thrust of his work is aimed at overcoming drug resistance in diseases, particularly malaria. Facets of this work are safe chemical manufacturing and drug delivery, including by nanoscale materials.
