Welcome to the Baker Lab at Queen’s University

The chemical industry is one of the biggest contributors to climate change, with a two-fold dependence on fossil fuels: both as starting materials and as an energy source for chemical reactions. Our research program involves the development of carbon-neutral and carbon-negative chemical processes, using renewable electricity as an energy source and sustainable materials as building blocks. The program will focus on pairing together electrochemical reactions, and understanding their mechanistic pathways, to decrease waste and better prepare these processes for industrial implementation. Ultimately, the research in the Baker lab will reduce the carbon footprint of the chemical industry while maintaining production of valuable chemical goods.
