Research

Electrochemical Energy Storage

Amongst the myriad applications foreseen for graphene, exploitation in electrochemical energy storage with supercapacitors or batteries ranks as one of the most prominent. Contributes to de-carbonising the energy supply - storage for renewable energy.

Research

Electrochemical Oxidation

Aim of project is to develop low cost/energy catalytic conversion of methane to easily transportable liquid fuels (rather than liquefaction).
