Welcome to the Newberg research group website
We are a multidisciplinary surface chemistry research group tackling problems on a molecular level in energy and environmental sciences.
Our group investigates the chemical changes of surfaces upon interaction/reaction with gases including water vapor under ambient conditions. Surfaces of interest include metals, metal oxides, ionic liquids, salts and ice. This research has implications in catalysis, photocatalysis, electrocatalysis, tribology and atmospheric chemistry.
