Materials Research on Nanocatalysts

Principal Investigator: Dr. Lauren Greenlee

We are interested in improving the performance of non-precious metal oxide and hydroxide nanocatalysts for electrochemical reactions such as the oxygen evolution reaction. We focus on alkaline electrochemistry and work to understand how nanocatalyst synthesis parameters can be controlled to obtain specific catalyst composition, phase, and morphology. We then evaluate catalysts to understand correlations between catalyst properties and performance.
