Nanostructured Metal-Oxide Catalyst Efficiently Converts CO2 to Methanol
Scientists have discovered a new catalytic system for converting carbon dioxide (CO2) to methanol—a key commodity used to create a wide range of industrial chemicals and fuels. More...
About the Chemistry Department
We conduct basic and applied research in the chemical sciences with an emphasis on energy science. Primary research subjects range from fundamental gas and condensed phase molecular dynamics to sustainable fuel synthesis and use, solar energy conversion, and novel media for chemical separations. Fundamental studies of neutrino properties are also conducted in several international collaborations. The research programs of the Chemistry Department are:
