Dooley Labs – our facilities include:

      • Continuous catalytic reactor systems covering a range of pressures and temperatures
      • Product analysis – GC, MS, LC
      • Catalyst characterization – DSC/TGA, FTIR, porosimetry, chemisorption
      • Synthetic facilities such as autoclaves, ovens, etc. 

We also work extensively at the LSU Synchrotron Center, especially on the XAS beamlines
