Research

The DiSalvo Group's research focuses on the synthesis, characterization and potential applications of new solid state materials. Current research interests include: 1) the development of general methods for the synthesis of compositionally and structurally complex intermetallic nano-particles for possible application as fuel cell catalysts, 2) the discovery and application of mesostructured conducting oxide and nitride materials as catalyst supports for electrochemical systems, including fuel cells, 3) higher energy and power density materials for battery technologies.
