Chemistry for Energy Conversion & Storage  

About us

We are a research group at Boston College focusing on understanding the science of energy conversion and storage. We aim to develop technologies that will allow for high-fficiency applications using low-cost materials. Much of our efforts centers around designing and synthesizing new materials with features in the nanoscale. Upon completion, our results are expected to change on how our energy is provided and utilized.

JPCC 2019

February 2019

Several new papers are recently accepted for publications, including Yumin's Pt studies (by Nano Research), Da's review paper on CO2 reduction (by J. Photochem. Photobio C) and Jim's collaboration paper with Prof. Katayama group on transient studies of Fe2O3 (by J. Phys. Chem. C). Congratulations to them all!

We welcome Dr. Rong Chen to join us as a postdoctoral researcher.

Dr. Wei Li, a recent graduate from the group, is among those who received the prestigious Outstanding Student Award for overseas Chinese. Congratulations to Wei! She is the 3rd in the group to receive this award.

Dunwei was named a Young Innovator in Nano Energy by the journal Nano Reserch. Thanks, group , for making this possible.
