Welcome to the Kuehnel Lab

panoramaWe are a new research group in the recently re-opened Chemistry Department at Swansea University. Our research is based on integrating molecular catalysts with nanomaterials into functional hybrid materials for solar fuel generation. Research projects cover a broad range of energy-related topics including photo- and electrocatalytic CO2 reduction and H2 generation with quantum dots, photo-electrochemical H2 evolution using perovskites and photocatalytic reforming of waste plastics and biomass. We are also interested in combining fluorine chemistry with solar energy conversion.
