Catalyst Design Lab
Madelyn Ball - Assistant Professor

Welcome to the Catalyst Design Lab @ WVU!

Our group aims to develop catalytic materials that are utilized in sustainable production of fuels and chemicals. Using both catalysis and synthetic materials chemistry, we employ operando spectroscopic techniques and well-controlled catalyst synthesis methods. The goal of this research is to elucidate active site structures under reactive environments in order to design and develop improved catalysts.

Catalyst Design Lab: catalyst synthesis, materials characterization, operando spectroscopy, reaction kinetics and kinetic modeling for conversion of CO2 to platform molecules
