Professor Robert G. Palgrave

Professor in Inorganic and Materials Chemistry

Summary
 Robert Palgrave is Professor in Inorganic and Materials Chemistry. He completed his PhD at UCL in 2007, before postdoctoral work at the University of Oxford and the University of Liverpool
Summary of research group
 We carry out research in synthetic solid state chemistry and photoemission spectroscopy, with a focus on materials for renewable energy generation and storage. Current research projects include development of sodium ion battery electrolytes as part of a Faraday Institute funded project, and discovery of new photovoltaic materials similar to the halide perovskites. We also develop new analytical methods using photoemission spectroscopy.
