Nadia and Angel worked together to demonstrate, in our latest JACS paper, that Pt/Cu bimetallic nanocrystal catalysts are more active than pure Pt for the complete combustion of propene! Congratulations to the team and collaborators from BASF, SLAC and Stanford!

Chengshuang demonstrates the use of porous polymer layers to improve CO2 hydrogenation activity of Ru in PNAS!

Chengshuang developed a method to coat Ru/TiO2 catalysts with porous polymer layers and modify their reactivity, showing much improved C-C coupling during CO2 hydrogenation. Congratulations to the whole team and collaborators!
