Click here to view our recently published paper titled: “A split pH direct liquid fuel cell powered by propanol or glycerol” in Applied Energy. This publication demonstrates the highest performance of either fuel in a direct liquid fuel cell; we also show versions of the fuel cell are possible using carbon black cathodes (rather than precious metals).

The Haan Research Lab started in 2011, when Dr. Haan joined the Department of Chemistry at California State University, Fullerton.  The Haan lab uses various electrochemical methods to: 1) study fundamental behavior of metal catalyst surfaces, 2) develop new catalysts for electrochemical oxidation of fuels and reduction of CO2, and 3) develop new power sources for portable electronic devices and paper-based sensors.
