Material Design for Energy Conversion by Taking Advantage of Structure-Property Relations in Multi-Metal Oxides
The functional properties of materials are largely dependent on their structures. Hence, controlling the structural order in the material network is an effective tool for the rational design of compounds for energy conversion and storage. Our research group focuses on multi-metal oxide materials and investigates the fundamental structure-property relationships that can be used to control their functional properties. We use chemical design principles and various synthetic strategies to modify the structural order to enhance several important properties, including charge transport, lithium ion conductivity, magnetism, and electrocatalytic hydrogen generation.
