Welcome to Novel
Energy Materials

Pioneering the next generation of energy solutions, the Novel Energy Materials lab, led by Dr. Michael Naguib at Tulane University, focuses on innovative 2D materials for advanced energy storage and conversion technologies. Our goal is to revolutionize batteries, supercapacitors, and electrocatalysis with sustainable, cost-effective systems, driven by the urgent need for renewable energy and portable device advancements.

Research Motivation

The need for reliable energy conversion and storage systems is continuously growing, especially with recent efforts to further develop renewable energy and the explosive growth of portable device technologies. Thus, the development of novel materials for energy conversion and storage is of critical importance and the research in our group has the general theme of Novel Energy Materials. Our research involves developing new 2D materials for applications in the next generation of batteries beyond Li-ion, supercapacitors and electrocatalysis. In addition to discovering and creating new materials, another important thrust is developing inexpensive materials for the commercially available electrochemical energy storage systems (e.g. Li-ion batteries and supercapacitors), which contribute to environmentally friendly and sustainable technologies.
