The Search for Electrocatalysts

Hello! I’ve now been researching here for a month, and it’s been a lot of fun!  I’ve had a few successes, and confirmed that some complexes do not work for the Oxygen reduction reactions.  A day of my research is usually composed of a test of a promising electrocatalyst, followed by looking through published papers…

Electrocatalyst evaluation for the Oxygen Reduction Reactions

Hi! I’m William Lake, and I’m a rising senior here at W&M.  I’m a double major in Chemistry and math, and I’ll be researching inorganic catalysts this summer in Professor McNamara’s physical-inorganic chemistry lab.   Specifically, I am looking for electrocatalysts for the Oxygen Reduction Reactions (ORR).
