"Boron-doped Acenes for the Redox Activation of Small Molecules"
Synthetic chemists in the Harman Lab are developing new reaction centers based on the d- and p-block elements for the catalysis of chemical reactions relevant to the storage of electrical current as chemical fuels. They study electrocatalytic CO2 reduction, C-H activation and the transformation of renewable biomass to liquid fuels.
