The Institute for Integrated Catalysis at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory facilitates collaborative research and development in catalysts for a secure energy future.
The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is seeking an accomplished scientist to lead a laboratory focus in Chemical Conversions.
Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory definitively resolved a long-standing controversy and showed that molecular water is more stable on titania surface than the hydroxyl fragments.

Researchers at the Center for Molecular Electrocatalysis find the key to speeding up the rate of reaction of a potential catalyst for energy storage lies in making the reactive parts of the catalyst move more slowly.
For about 7 years, Dr. Julia Laskin, Dr. Grant Johnson, and Dr. Venkateshkumar Prabhakaran have pursued studies focused on understanding how to drive vital reactions. These studies allowed them to design electrodes and other surfaces with never-before-seen functional properties. They share their perspectives in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C.
- Storing electric energy in hydrogen (a focus of the Center for Molecular Electrocatalysis, an Energy Frontier Research Center)
- Adding hydrogen to oxo-functionalized carbon resources (that is, biomass constituents or CO2)
- Manipulating carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds
- Exhaust catalysis
