The Manthiram Lab is focused on creating electrically-powered catalysts which drive oxidation and reduction steps involved in chemical synthesis, using nitrogen gas, carbon dioxide, and water as sustainable synthons.

Coffee Bean

CO2 as C-atom source

Carbon-negative functionalization of molecules using carbon dioxide

Coffee Bean

N2 as N-atom source

Dissociating dinitrogen molecules for chemical synthesis

Coffee Bean

H2O as O-atom source

Transferring oxygen atoms from water to organic molecules



Members of our team deeply analyzing carbon and oxygen atoms – sadly, candlepin bowling does not provide nitrogen atoms.


We're terrible at tweeting stuff right when it happens, but isolation is an opportune time for #throwback to just a few weeks ago, when we went out and got ice cream to celebrate the temperature passing 20pi Fahrenheit. #SuchSweetTimes #TeaAndCoffeeFlavsForDays

Our group at Northeastern is looking for a post-doc in the area of solid electrolytes for Li-ion batteries. We're electrochemical engineers who look at cells holistically. If you know anyone who might be interested please pass it on. Thank you!

We're "hard at work" @BrookhavenLab - definitely "totally focused on XAS"

Gotta stay awake somehow 🚲🚲🚲🚲
