Welcome to the website of the group of Prof. Jordi Cabana at the University of Illinois at Chicago!
Our group is generally interested in the physical and inorganic chemistry of materials, with emphasis on electrochemical properties. We aim to provide chemistry solutions to technological problems in energy applications. Our group combines approaches from classical solid state chemistry with nanoscience, with the goal of contributing to a unified field.
Our current focus is on electrochemical energy storage, which is critical in the development of a green economy based on renewable sources. We partner with researchers at a variety of other institutions in order to tackle problems of large complexity, where interdisciplinary approaches are required to answer scientific questions. While we are physically located in the Department of Chemistry at UIC, we are also members of the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research and the NorthEast Center for Chemical Energy Storage.
