Photoelectrolysis of water. In collaboration with researchers at several other colleges and universities, we are examining a series of metal oxides looking for those which catalyze the reaction 2H2O(l) ?2H2 (g)+ O2(g) in the presence of sunlight. Students working on this project would learn about combinatorial chemistry, lasers, photochemistry, and computer interfacing.
