Welcome to the Walter Research Group in the Department of Chemistry at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. We are interested in the synthesis and development of new organic materials for molecular electronics. Our work involves applications related to photocatalysis, materials for photovoltaic or solar fuel applications. Our work spans materials research, organic synthesis, hybrid organic/inorganic systems, and nanoscience. We are particularly interested in enhancing the light harvesting and energy (exciton) transfer mechanisms found in porphyrin thin films and organic electrochromic materials. We are also very active with outreach programs including a new Polymer Seminconductor Outreach Kit.
