Electrochemistry and Spectroscopy of Individual Reactive Entities

When traditional analytical methods are used to characterize a chemical system, a large number of the individual units which make up the system are being probed simultaneously. For highly homogeneous systems, such as a solution of small molecules, this does not present a considerable disadvantage. However, for highly heterogeneous systems, such as a collection of nanoparticles (which inherently vary in size and shape from particle to particle), a lot of information can be lost in this “averaging” process. Taking measurements on one particle at a time can potentially provide much richer information on how different aspects of its structure relate to its reactivity. This philosophy drives our research program, which focuses on the development and use of combined electrochemical and spectroscopic tools to probe chemical behavior at the single particle (or even single molecule) level, with an emphasis on electrocatalytic and photoelectrochemical materials relevant to renewable energy systems.
