SUNCAT Center for Interface Science and Catalysis
A serendipitous discovery lets researchers spy on this self-assembly process for the first time with SLAC’s X-ray synchrotron. What they learn will help them fine-tune precision materials for electronics, catalysis and more.
A recent discovery by scientists from the SUNCAT Center for Interface Science and Catalysis could lead to a new, more sustainable way to make ethanol without corn or other crops.
A tiny amount of squeezing or stretching can produce a big boost in catalytic performance, according to a new study led by scientists at Stanford and SLAC.
An advance by SLAC and Stanford researchers greatly reduces the time needed to analyze complex catalytic reactions for making fuel, industrial chemicals and other products, and should improve computational analysis throughout chemistry.
Stanford and SLAC researchers are leading a multi-year effort to produce nitrogen-based fertilizers in a sustainable way, by inventing a solar-powered chemistry technology that can make it right on the farm and apply it directly to crops, drip-irrigation style.
Scientists at SLAC and Stanford have identified active carbon catalysts and developed an electrochemical cell designed to purify water in small villages.
After 30 years in industry, he is leading a new focus at the lab’s SSRL X-ray light source and looking for ways to build on research strengths at SLAC and Stanford.
Squeezing a platinum catalyst a fraction of a nanometer nearly doubles its catalytic activity, a finding that could lead to better fuel cells and other clean energy technologies.
The discovery could make water splitting, a key step in a number of clean energy technologies, cheaper and more efficient.
The SLAC staff scientist is being honored for using theory and computation to help design new catalysts for generating and storing clean energy.
