Congratulations to Andrew and Joseph on having been selected as NSF Graduate Research Fellows, and to Cody for the Honorable Mention!
We welcome Aisulu and Larissa into the group as Ph.D. students! Aisulu will be working on microporous materials for CO2 reduction, whereas Larissa will study nanostructured photocatalysts for H2 production and CO2 reduction. We are excited to have them in the group!
Cody wins the Richard J. Kokes Travel Award from the North American Catalysis Society to travel to NAM25 and present his work on Pd/Au-based materials for methane activation! He will be joined by Andrew who will be also presenting a talk on hydrib organic-inorganic catalysts!
Paolo Fornasiero and colleagues, with "intellectual" contribution from Matteo, publish their work on nanoarchitectures for clean hydrogen generation in Nature Communications! Congratulations to a great team effort! Read it here
It was a great week for the group with our first participation at the annual AIChE meeting! Jay, Andrew, Liheng, Victor, Cody, Emmett, Joseph, Willis and Matteo presented a total of 10 oral presentations and 1 poster to illuminate the meeting!
Our first group manuscript has been accepted for publication! Ian, Jay, Emmett and Willis, with contribution from Prof. Majumdar (Mechanical Engineering), publish their work "Elucidating the synergistic mechanism of Ni-Mo electrocatalysts for the hydrogen evolution reaction" in the special issue on Functional Oxides in MRS Communications!
Work at the University of Pennsylvania on dendronized nanocrystals and their self-assembly in which Matteo contributed has been accepted for publication in the Journal of the American Chemical Society! Read it here.
