Nanoscience and Catalysis

Research Group

Advancing Nanosynthesis

We develop bottom-up synthetic methodologies for shape-specific nanocrystals and study their formation mechanisms, optical and catalytic properties, surface chemistry and structural stability in different environments.

Waste Molecules Upgrading

Working at the nexus of nanoscience, catalysis, and electrochemistry, we advance technologies for treating and upgrading carbon and nitrogen emissions.

Catalysis for Energy

With circular economy goal in mind, we study structure-property relationships in catalytic systems for flue-to-fuel conversion and hydrogen storage and utilization.

We Use Chemistry and Nanoscience to Foster Sustainable Use of Resources
