Our research goals include
- practical electrosynthesis
- remediation of environmental pollutants
- discovery of new transition-metal catalysts
- development of new electrode systems such as polymer-coated electrodes, semiconductor electrodes, and modified platinum, palladium, and silver cathodes
- development of new media for electrochemistry such as room-temperature ionic liquids
Due to the diversity of on-going projects in our laboratory, group members develop skills in a wide range of synthetic and analytical techniques. Included among these are methods of organic and inorganic synthesis; electroanalytical techniques such as cyclic voltammetry and controlled-potential electrolysis; and analytical techniques such as HPLC, UV-Vis, NMR, GC-MS, ESR, ESI-MS, and HPLC-MS. Additionally, we employ a variety of specialized instrumentation, cells, and electrodes to perform more sophisticated electrochemical experiments.
