Short description of the research

His group targets such schemes by synthesis, characterization, and functionalization of new nanomaterials with finely tailored atomic structures for catalytic activity, selectivity and stability improvements, and design and engineer electro- and thermo-chemical processes and systems at high energy efficiencies and reduced carbon footprints.

The Bukowski research group utilizes cutting-edge tools from computational chemistry, molecular simulations, and data science to identify, understand, and engineer new catalysts. In particular, the group is interested in nanoporous catalysts (such as zeolites and metal-organic frameworks) as well supported metal/metal-oxide nanoparticles for highly selective chemical transformations. The group seeks to design optimal nanoporous materials that will have a transformative impact on energy and the environment
