Controlled Growth, Doping, and Modification of Carbon Materials for High Performance Catalysts and Electrodes

Principal Investigator: 

The goal of this project is to synthesize highly active doped graphene based materials for fuel cell cathode oxygen reduction reactions, high capacity lithium batteries, and transparent conductive electrodes for organic solar cell applications. The project requires state of the art synthesis to prepare novel molecules to be used as dopants, as well as expertise in the synthesis, design and characterization of carbon materials.
