Understanding chemical systems to develop clean energy solutions

Improving energy security and reducing environmental impacts of energy use

Researchers in Brookhaven's Chemistry Division seek to understand and control chemical systems to develop clean energy solutions for national needs. Our work helps to develop chemical principles that underlie new energy conversion and storage technologies that improve energy security and reduce the environmental impacts of energy use.

Key aspects of our research are inspired by the goal to enable a net-zero carbon economy to address climate change. We're also engaged in international collaborations investigating fundamental properties of neutrinos and other weakly interacting particles. Our research leverages the capabilities of the National Synchrotron Light Source II, the Center for Functional Nanomaterials, and the division’s own Accelerator Center for Energy Research.
