We are developing materials for sustainable energy storage and conversion technologies such as aqueous electrolyte systems, carbon dioxide reduction catalysts and water splitting devices.
PRECURSOR SYNTHESIS & WET CHEMISTRY
We work on the development and isolation of molecular precursors in large scale, with minimal environmental and cost implications. These precursors are often used for CVD to grow functional coatings for photovoltaic and optoelectronic applications, and offer more effective control over purity, stoichiometry and morphology of the films.
CHEMICAL VAPOUR DEPOSITION
We use atmospheric pressure (APCVD) and aerosol assisted chemical vapour deposition (AACVD) as synthetic routes to grow thin films on various substrates for photocatalytic, transparent conductors and antimicrobial applications.
