Yuan Hu is showing us the Ethanol Fuel Cell in the group. Researchers are working on new types of catalysts to improve the efficiency of the C-C bond breakage. From left to right: Yuan Hu, Peng Zhao (MAE), Peng Zhao (CHM), Sheng Yang, Yang, Kuo Liao.


Kuo Liao is introducing his research! It focuses on mechanistic studies of electrochemical catalytic CO2 reduction to value added products. His research approach utilized various instrumentation and proper experimental design to probe mechanistic details for imidazolium catalyzed CO2 reduction.
