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.
In collaboration with David Bennett and John Vohs at the University of Pennsylvania, our joint manuscript on thermal and photochemical reactions on facet-selected titania nanocrystals has been accepted for publication in Surface Science!
With the Summer quarter starting, we welcome Matt and Pedro, Stanford Undergraduates; Adi, from Cupertino High School; and Ashmeet, a teacher from Castro Valley High School, who will all be spending Summer research periods in our group!
In collaboration with Frank Abild-Pedersen of SUNCAT and George Graham and Xiaoqing Pan of U. Michigan, our story on in-situ characterization of catalysts under strong-metal support-interaction state is out in Nano Letters!
