Congratulations to Santiago for receiving scholarship/internship through the Mitacs Accelerate program.
September 2021, Santiago was awarded the Mitacs Accelerate Fellowship. The program provides a long-term funding and internship option for master’s and PhD students. Recipients can also access professional development training that helps them ensure project success and gain in-demand career skills.
RSC Horizon Prize, John Jeyes Award
June 2021, Dr. Siahrostami and her international collaborators were named winners of 2021 Environment, Sustainability, and Energy Division Horizon Prize: John Jeyes Award from the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). The "RSC Horizon Prize" highlights the most exciting, contemporary chemical science at the cutting edge of research. These prizes are for teams or collaborations that are opening up new directions and possibilities in their field.
Congratulations to Claude for his Accepted Paper in Nature Nanotechnology!
Our recent work in collaboration with Professor Baek from Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology has been accepted in Nature Nanotechnology. The work is focused on an innovative process for ammonia synthesis at low temperature and pressure.
Congratulations to Amir on His Publication in Nature Communications
Our recent Nature Communications paper is focused on the electrochemical synthesis of hydrogen peroxide via O2 reduction reaction. The study presents a novel catalytic material made of Pd clusters embeded in carbon-based materials that produces hydrogen peroxide in an acidic environment. This work was in collaboration with Prof. Zheng Chen from UC San Diego and Prof. Jinguang Chen from Colombia University.
Our Recent Publication in Nature Catalysis is Online
Our Nature Catalysis paper applies a novel approach in engineering electrode interfacial, whereby coating the carbon catalyst with hydrophobic polymers allows in situ confinement of produced O2 gas and thereby successfully tune the water oxidation reaction pathway.
Featured Story in UToday and CLS
Our publication in Nature Communcations is highlited in UToday. Together with our experimental collaborator from Rice University, Dr. Hotian Wang, we designed and identified a low-cost effective catalyst made of single atoms of Fe embedded in carbon nanotube that drives 95% selectivity for production of hydrogen peroxide. The designed catalyst proved to be outstanding for treating E-coli bacteria.
Welcome to Our New Members, Claude and Nikhil
September first, 2019, Claude Coppex and Nikhil Aravindakshan joined our lab. Claude is our first PhD student. He has received his MSc. from Chemistry and Molecular Science, University of Bern (Switzerland). Nikhil is a PDF who has received his PhD degree from the University of Regina, Regina, Canada.
