Welcome To Yavuzlab

At the Oxide and Organic Nanomaterials for Energy & Environment Laboratory, we design and make new nanomaterials from oxide or organic building blocks to offer sustainable solutions for the pressing issues such as carbon dioxide capture and water treatment. Please note that we'll be using www.YavuzLab.com for our new website.


Research Interests

Yavuzlab's interests focus on developing sustainable nano &porous materials chemistry to address global challenges in the environment, particularly those related to CO2, water, and methane. His current projects include dry reforming of methane for circular carbon economy, CO₂ capture with tethered amines, CO₂ conversion to cyclic carbonates, water capture from air, methane storage in porous polymers,electrocatalytic water splitting, electronic waste recycling, seawater mining, and micro pollutant removal from water.
