Welcome to The Gu Lab

We are interested in the development of novel hybrid interfaces with organometallic compounds, semiconductors, and nanomaterials.  We analyze the underlying mechanisms of electron and energy transfer and their influence on the overall solar fuel generation efficiency. Our lab intersects areas in inorganic chemistry (i.e. organometallic ligand and catalyst development, solid-state chemistry), physical chemistry (i.e. nanosecond charge transfer and surface chemistry), and materials science. We use state-of-the-art analytical techniques such as NMR spectroscopy, IR, and photoelectrochemistry to shine light on reaction mechanisms along with SEM, TEM, and XPS to monitor morphological changes occurring at the material interface.
