Splitting Water
The water oxidation half-reaction provides protons and electrons, which can be used to reduce a variety of abundant substrates and feedstocks to make fuels (e.g. hydrogen), and materials (e.g. ethylene and ammonia).

The Hunter Lab at the Rowland Institute at Harvard 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 predicing properties of materials and molecules as they are synthesized in the lab.

Stay tuned!
