The Chemical Energy Conversions and Applications (ChECA) research laboratory is dedicated for the promotion of research on sustainable energy development via the application of fundamentals of chemical energy conversion reactions and development of new materials to enhance their efficiency. Our research involves development of variety of functional solid materials with fast ion or electron transport capable of driving various chemical conversion reactions such as catalytic, electrocatalytic, photocatalytic and biocatalytic reactions to obtain energy and store it in various forms. The research also involves investigation of transport phenomenon of ions, electrons and other associated species in solid materials and solid/liquid or solid/gas interface together with their mechanisms in various materials such as solid electrolytes, mixed conductors, catalysts, photo-catalysts, functional membranes, and nano-structured materials. The chemical energy conversion applications of interest include but not limited to batteries, fuel reformers, bio-fuels, fuel cells, bio-fuel cells, chemical solar cells, chemical sensors, actuators, and super-capacitors. The i-Kohza also advises relevant industries on chemical energy conversion problems.
