Teaching Responsibilities

Dr. Griffin's group is currently exploring advanced methods for preparing nanostructured heterogeneous catalysts, with particular emphasis on developing catalysts needed for sustainable energy technologies.

Preparation techniques include chemical vapor deposition, atomic layer deposition, and electrochemical deposition, alone and in combination with colloidal nanoparticle synthesis.

Catalyst materials focus mainly on bulk and supported copper and copper oxide nanostructures, which are active for a variety of reactions, including electrochemical reduction of CO2, water gas shift, methanol synthesis, and methanol oxidation.
