Lisa McElwee-White - Heterogeneous Catalysis and Surface Science

Synthesis and Characterization, Kinetic Studies, and Density Functional Theory

Heterogeneous Catalysts are key to mitigating climate change, forging a renewable energy and chemicals industry, and providing a high quality of life throughout the globe without sacrificing our environment. At UF, we study catalysis through a combination of synthesis, characterization, and kinetic studies (Hagelin-Weaver and Hibbitts), surface science studies of interfacial chemistry (Weaver), and density functional theory calculations to give insights into atomistic behavior (Hibbitts).
