Sustainable electrochemistry

Electrocatalytic synthesis represents highly tunable and versatile green chemistry approach to carbon dioxide conversion into value-added chemicals, synthesis of industrially-important precursors to pharmaceuticals and plastics, valorization of biomass by-products and wastewater treatment. When powered by renewable energy sources, it can also serve as a chemical storage solution to surplus electricity. The work in this group is focused on the development of efficient and selective electrocatalysts for these sustainable transformations and studies of reaction mechanisms to improve target product yields.
