Founded in 2014 by Professor Adam Duong, DuongLab is interested in the design of materials for sustainable development by tackling two central issues: energy conversion and storage.

Currently, the team is working on advanced materials for the enhancement of energy technologies. Particularly, DuongLab is involved in the design of innovative materials for lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells, supercapacitors, solar panels, production of hydrogen (H2) and reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) via catalysis or storage and gas separation using porous materials (Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs), Hydrogen-Bonded Organic Frameworks (HOFs), etc.)

DuongLab offers innovative synthetic methods based on organic / inorganic, coordination, supramolecular and reticular chemistry to incorporate functional groups and organize matter for energy and new technologies development.

DuongLab also places at the heart of its concerns the training. The team is perpetually seeking to train the next generations of researchers, but also to be part of the scientific community which, through exchanges between its members, allows the growth of knowledge. DuongLab is involved in education, expert groups and collaborations with other universities around the world.

Research is a vast, challenging and multidisciplinary. Currently, the field of energy is growing during the past several years. Environmental or economic problems are a source of concern; some energy processes must be completely redesigned in terms of optimization, profitability or simply innovated. Resources are becoming rares and it is important to manage to better exploit them or find new resources in accordance with sustainable development.
