About the Group
Research on the electrochemical methods for the storage of energy, has undergone a resurgence of interest and the fundamental
knowledge of physics of these methods, deserve attention. This is because energy stemming from electrochemical systems has a
wide range of applications, from powering minute portable devices, to assisting large scale electrical grids.
The group employs a comprehensive approach to study materials, particularly the electrochemical exfoliation of HOPG for graphene
synthesis and improved supercapacitor electrodes. Furthermore, the emphasis is being made on the electrochemical investigation of
intercalated graphite electrodes. Alongside, studies on electrocatalytic water splitting and electrochemical oxidation of aq. SO2
on carbon electrodes are also being carried out. We combine experiments and theory to understand the thermodynamic driving force,
governing the equilibrium behaviour of these systems.
