Current Research Interests
Synthetic photo− and electrochemistry
Our group is currently interested in the active utilization of solar (visible light) energy and electricity to create innovative process technologies driven by single electron transfer (SET) events. We are currently studying a potent photocatalytic system employing readily accessible and inexpensive polysulfide anions, which are actively employed as the charge transfer carriers in the lithium−sulfur batteries. In addition, our group is currently leading a multi−disciplinary research team spanning synthetic organic chemistry, catalysis, electrochemistry, photochemistry, materials chemistry, computational modeling, and chemical engineering with an industry partner, Syngenta, through the NRF CRP project on the development of novel electrophotocatalysis for the greener and more sustainable manufacturing of complex small molecules.
