Environmental Catalysis and Nanomaterials Laboratory
Our research group is involved in materials synthesis & characterization, and environmental catalysis. We synthesize a number of new materials, including transition metal carbides, nitrides, and oxides. In addition, we use these new materials to investigate environmentally significant catalytic reactions.
