- Greenhouse Gas Carbon Dioxide Mitigation: Science and Technology, Martin Halmann and Meyer Steinberg (1998, CRC-Press)
- Methane and its Derivatives (Chemical Industries), Sunggyu Lee (1998, CRC-Press)

Course Description:
Energy technologies related to methane, carbon dioxide and methanol will define the fate of the fossil fuels and earth’s climate. This class covers basic organic chemistry, sustainability, sources, and biochemistry of these commodities, and provide the state-of-the-art in catalyst design for energy conversions. No pre-requisite courses required and the class is open to all graduate and undergraduate students.

Fall 2010 
EEW 601 - Energy and Material Science 
Taught together with Prof. Galen D. Stucky and Prof. Jung-Yong Lee

This course is designed for introducing the research field and its trends that lead academic developments for sustainable energy technology and to provide in-depth lectures on those topics. In particular, a wide variety of energy and materials ranging from material chemistry to catalysis will be covered. In each session, both critical issues and emerging topics on sustainable energy development are to be dealt with.
