The Gallant Energy and Carbon Conversion Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is advancing the science and engineering of electrochemical reactions. We propose, study, and improve upon new electrochemical transformations of relevance to energy storage in batteries and to emerging electrochemical processes that capture, concentrate, and/or convert carbon dioxide (CO2).

Lithium and calcium metal anodes

Electrolyte design

Fluorinated conversion reactions

Electrochemical CO2 management

We embody an interdisciplinary approach that is rooted in electrochemical science. We adapt foundational knowledge and engineering insights at the intersection of chemistry, thermodynamics, and materials (and occasionally kinetics) to uncover new electrochemical reactions and enrich our library of known processes.
