Accelerated Materials Development in Flow

Welcome to the Abolhasani Lab

Our multidisciplinary research group is primarily focused on studies of autonomous flow chemistry strategies to accelerate the development of solution-processed materials for energy and chemical technologies. We envision such autonomous materials development strategies can accelerate our efforts towards addressing the most pervasive challenge of the modern world: Meeting a rapidly growing global energy demand while preserving the environment. To meet these goals, we study the fundamentals of process intensification using microreaction engineering concepts and principles of “smart” manufacturing
