The Chemical Science and Engineering Division (CSE) is multidisciplinary. Its people have formal training in chemistry; physics; materials science; and electrical, mechanical, chemical, and nuclear engineering. They are specialists in catalysis, electrochemical systems, nuclear fuel cycle, combustion chemistry, and time resolved, multi-scale and ultra-fast chemistry. Our researchers have experience working in and collaborating with university, industry and government research and development laboratories throughout the world.
Through partnerships both at the laboratory and with colleagues from academia and industry, researchers in Argonne’s Chemical Sciences and Engineering division work tirelessly to uncover the secrets of energy. Argonne is a world leader in the field of battery development and energy storage research, and is home to the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research, the Department of Energy-funded battery research hub, as well as other major initiatives based around chemistry.
