Advanced Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage: Approaching the Future

DuongLab is a research group located at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières, at the Hydrogen Research Institute. Founded in 2014 by Professor Adam Duong, the group is interested in design, synthesis and characterizations of materials for the development of sustainable energies. Two central issues is addressed in our work: energy conversion and storage.

The group is working on the synthesis of novel materials to improve the current energy technologies. Particularly involved in the design of materials for batteries, DuongLab also seeks to address the problems of storage and synthesis of gas from the properties of materials.

During many decades, scientists have attempted to prepare three-dimensional, two-dimensional structures in order to induce properties to materials. DuongLab offers innovative synthetic methods for incorporating and positioning functional groups to various types of materials such as Covalent Organic Frameworks (COF), Metal Organic Frameworks (MOF), Hydrogen bounded Organic Frameworks (HOF).

DuongLab also places at the heart of its concerns the transmission of knowledge. The group constantly seeks to participate in the training of future generations of researchers, but also to be part of the scientific community which, through exchanges between its members, allows the expansion of knowledge. DuongLab is involved in teaching and is involve in several center and institute, and has numerous collaborations with other universities.

We are specialized in the design, synthesis and characterization of materials for the development of energy and nanotechnology.

We prepare crystalline materials using the concepts of supramolecular chemistry and taking inspiration from nature.

We are looking for solutions for the transition to clean and renewable energy sources, to clean up the environment by the sequestration of Carbon dioxide and its conversion into valuable chemical products.

We designed photocatalysts which have excellent high performances to produce clean hydrogen fuel.
