Isaiah Gyan Wins Graduate Research Competition
Isaiah’s work in Dr. Frank Cheng’s lab deals with a graphene-like material, “Guitar”, obtained from a thermolyzed asphalt reaction developed at the University of Idaho. This material, which is simple to produce, looks like graphene, but has radically different electrochemical behavior. Among these is the highest measured aqueous anodic and cathodic stability yet reported. Immediate applications include electrochemical reactors for organic pollutant destruction, ultracapacitors, and batteries.
