More than 90% of all industrial chemicals are produced using catalysis. Catalysts enable products to be formed selectively and more efficiently by opening lower energy paths.
Breakthroughs in catalysis are required to fuel our future. What kind of catalysts will harness the power of the sun to effect water splitting on the scale necessary to meet our energy needs?
The Piers Research Group focuses on the discovery and detailed mechanistic understanding of new catalytic reactions.
