Amol Jadhav

MSc, PhD

Amol Received an MSc in organic chemistry in 2013 from the University of Pune, India. He then went to South Korea to receive a doctoral degree in materials science from the Department of Energy Science and Technology, Myongji University in 2018. He joined the Center for Integrated Nanostructure Physics, Institute for Basic Science, Sungkyunkwan University, South Korea as a senior researcher in 2018. While there, he supervised the IBS Core Project team as a team leader.

Amol’s research is on both fundamental and applied aspects of novel nanomaterials and their application in energy conversion and storage. In particular he researches the chemistry and physics of materials in relation to how they affect the catalysation of certain chemical processes. In general, he examines two different kinds of reactions: those that use renewable energy sources to transform water, carbon dioxide, and methane into fuels and chemicals; and those that turn those fuels back into useable energy in the form of electricity.

His research interests include:

  • electrochemical storage/conversion
  • photocatalysis
  • carbon dioxide and methane conversion to value-added products
  • electro/photo chemical nitrogen fixation to ammonia
  • electrochemical carbon dioxide and nitrogen/nitrous oxide fixation to urea
  • water electrolysis for hydrogen production
