About Atomic Materials for Catalysis Group
The Atomic Materials for Catalysis Group led by Dr. Jingjie Wu in University of Cincinnati aims to develop catalysts based on atomic-scale design for conversion of abundant feedstocks like small molecules CO2, CO, N2, CH4, and C3H8 into value-added chemicals or fuels and biomass upgrading to biofuels and hydrocarbons. We target to enhance the fundamental understanding of electronic and geometric structure-catalysis relationship through our research. Meanwhile we also extend our work to the design and fabrication of nano/micro-scale stretchable energy storage devices for powering nano-bioelectronics and microelectronics.
