Solar Fuels Laboratory

The expertise of the Solar Fuels Lab lies in developing catalytic systems for hydrogen gas production from water splitting, and the reduction of carbon dioxide to fuels and chemical feedstocks. Our work spans from fundamental research on basic properties of the catalysts to developing prototype systems.

High performance liquid chromatograph

High Performance Liquid Chromatograph (HPLC)

The HPLC is an analytical system employed to identify and quantify liquid products obtained experimentally. The system is meant to analyse small amounts of organic acids with the use of a variable wavelength detector (VWD). Coupled with an automatic injector, this system can analyse up to 132 samples in one run, making the analysis easier and faster.

Headspace-Gas Chromatography System

Simultaneous analysis of several volatile liquid products using a headspace-gas chromatography (HS-GC) system ensures the full range detection of all liquid products produced during an experiment (for example electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide).

Other equipments in the lab:
  • Online gas chromatography system with valves
  • Potentiostat
  • Pressure and flow control system
  • Polishing machine
