Project Portfolio

Automotive exhaust gas capture performance of simple oxides

Started July 28, 2023

Abstract or project description

The student will synthesize a few different simple oxide materials to test their gas capture performance for automotive exhaust gases. He will synthesize 3-5 materials and characterize them to ensure that the proper material has been made and then test and quantify their gas capture performance.
