Electrolyzers for fuels and chemicals

Chen Lab

The Chen lab designs and optimizes fuel cells and electrolyzer catalysts for seasonal energy storage. Specifically, we focus on water electrolysis to produce H2, use electrons to convert CO2 and N2 to value-added chemicals, and leverage electrooxidation of H2 and other chemicals for fuel cell applications.


Esposito Lab

The Esposito lab combines chemical engineering principles with advanced in situ analytical tools to develop (photo)electrocatalytic materials and devices that use solar energy to convert low energy reactants into chemicals and fuels. Our efforts focus on developing design principles for unconventional electrocatalyst and device architectures that are capable of inherently stable operation and electrocatalytic functionalities not present in today’s commercial electrochemical technologies.
