Tracking Heat-Driven Decay in Leading Electric Vehicle Batteries

Scientists reveal the atomic-scale structural and electronic degradations that plague rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and make them vulnerable during high-temperature operations. More...

About the Chemistry Department

Chemistry department scientists conduct basic and applied research in the chemical sciences with an emphasis on new energy conversion pathways.  Primary research subjects include catalysis and electrocatalysis for sustainable fuel synthesis and use, solar energy conversion to fuels, fundamental gas and condensed phase molecular dynamics, radiation chemistry, and advanced chemical separations for energy applications. Fundamental studies of neutrino properties are also conducted in several international collaborations in nuclear and particle physics.
