Congrats Dr. Kuo Liao! Kuo presented his thesis on A view on the imidazolium electrochemical reduction on platinum and gold electrodes in aqueous solution: implications for imidazolium assisted CO2 reduction. Congratulations Kuo!
Congratulations Dr. Travis Shaw! Travis gave his oral defense of his dissertation on Utilizing Mechanistic Insight for the Improved Design of Homogeneous Manganese Electrocatalysts for CO2 Reduction today. Travis is joining Arcanum Alloys (with Zach) to be the Senior Materials Engineer. Congrats Travis!
Congrats Dr. Zach Detweiler! Zachary Detweiler defended his dissertation on A View of Aqueous Electrochemical Carbon Dioxide Reduction to Formate at Indium Electrodes, and the Reversible Electrodeposition of Silver in Ionic Liquids Through the Lens of Fundamental Surface Science. Zach is heading to Arcanum Alloys to serve as their Senior Characterization Engineer. Congrats Zach!
Solar CO2 Reduction Featured Recent work from the group published in the Journal of CO2 Utilization describing record conversion of light energy to CO2 reduced products was featured on the Department of Chemistry home page.

The three active projects currently being investigated are:
· Electrochemical and Photoelectrochemical CO2 Reduction;
· Novel electrocatalysts and membrane treatments for the direct ethanol fuel cell;
· Novel cyanogel materials for metal nanoparticle synthesis.
We're always looking for highly motivated undergraduate students and graduate students. If interested, please contact Dr. Bocarsly, stop by the lab on the third floor of Frick Chemistry Laboratory, or come to one of our open group meetings.
