Undergraduates

Joseph Gurrentz


Jan. 2013 - present
Undergraduate research student in the Lehnert group
Research Project
Synthesis and Surface Immobilization of Cobaloxime Hydrogen Production Catalysts


 
Claire Kozemchak


May 2014 - present
Undergraduate research student in the Lehnert group

Desmond Madu


Oct. 2014 - present
UROP student in the Lehnert group
Research Project
New Redox-Active Compounds for Applications in Liquid Batteries
I am working on the preparation on new redox-active coordination compounds that are robust and can be cycled between different redox states. The electrochemical performance of these systems is tested using cyclic voltammetry and electrolysis. The complexes will be developed towards applications in large-scale liquid batteries for energy storage.
