Welcome to the Domke Group
Electrochemical Surface Science
The Domke group aims to real-time image and spatially resolve nanoscale molecular processes at electrified solid/liquid interfaces of 2D and 3D materials such as metal or oxide surfaces and porous polymers or metal-organic frameworks. We develop and employ advanced nearfield or nonlinear in situ Raman spectro-microscopies to answer fundamental questions about molecular interactions, adsorbate structure and chemical conversion at electrified surfaces under realistic working conditions. The knowledge gained from our research provides a rational basis for green and economic material design and fabrication for improved chemical and energy conversion, like (electro)catalytically or -synthetically active electrodes, sensitized solar cell interfaces, redox-active proteins or fuel cell membranes.
