synthetic and catalytic inorganic chemistry
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE HUNTER LAB
The Hunter Lab at Northwestern University is focused on the development of molecules and materials which can electrochemically and sustainably convert earth-abundant feedstocks to value-added chemicals and fuels.
We employ state-of-the-art materials synthesis protocols and applied electrochemistry to screen and assay for desired reactivity. By focusing mainly on electrochemical processes, Carnot inefficencies can be avoided in industrial-scale transformations.
We are aided by computational methods, simultaneously mining crystal structure databases for target structures and predicting properties of materials and molecules as they are synthesized in the lab.
