We develop multinary (many element) materials that are used for the formation of sustainable fuels and energy.
The multinary materials are used as catalysts or components in solar cells that employ the special properties of the materials to form clean sustainable fuels. For example, some of the reactions we investigate lead to the formation of H2 (e.g. by water splitting), or carbon based fuels like CH3CH2OH (e.g. by CO2 reduction).
The methods we use to discover and study these multinary materials include machine learning guided high-throughput synthesis and analysis tools, which lead to rapid breakthroughs and state-of-the-art material systems.
