Dr. Abhi Karkamkar Catalyst Synthesis and Imaging Team Catalysis Science
Physical Sciences Division

Abhi's research is focused on the synthesis of multifunctional catalysts that are created by an approach based on surface organometallic chemistry. This approach is being developed to provide a pathway to bridge molecular catalysts and heterogeneous catalysts as model single site catalysts for conversion of carbon dioxide to fuels and activation of hydrogen on ambiphilic surfaces. His research interests are primarily in the area of synthesis and modification of these multifunctional catalysts and sup-ports. He is also involved with calorimetric studies of hydrogen storage materials and synthesis and characterization of zeolites, mesoporous materials, oxide nanoparticles, and nano alloy materials.
