Problem Solver

Brian Conley

Areas Brian Conley is Knowledgeable in:

Hydrogen storage
Small organic molecule synthesis and manipulation

Techniques Brian Conley Uses:

1) Identify the need for technology or existing technology from the literature
2) Design solutions using sound chemical concepts based on chemical mechanisms
3) Design experiments to validate or dispute the premise of the work, including isotopic labeling, NMR methods for the determination of thermodynamic and kinetic parameters, and isolation and characterization of intermediates and products of reactions.

Brian Conley's Problem Solving Skills:

  1. Use of concepts of thermodynamics and kinetics in chemical reactivity
  2. Knowledge of fuel cell chemistry (i.e. catalysis, electrochemistry)
  3. Development of catalysts for hydrogen release from materials
  4. Analytical chemistry expertise: GC/MS, infrared (FT-IR), UV-vis, NMR
  5. Ph.D. level problem solving ability in chemistry

Brian Conley's Problem Solving Experience:

  1. I developed published chemistry in the area of methane conversion to methanol (gas-to-liquid) technology.
  2. I developed patent pending technology for liberation of hydrogen gas from high hydrogen content materials using transition metal catalysis.
