New paper published in Sustainable Energy & Fuels on titanium niobium oxide / carbon hybrids and composites. Our work demonstrates that well-designed metal oxide / carbon interfaces are of high importance as well as careful phase analysis; it is not suitable to generalize statements like “hybrids are always better than composites”.

New paper published in Carbon comparing pore structure models of nanoporous carbons obtained from small angle X-ray scattering and gas adsorption. This work was accomplished in collaboration with Montanuniversität Leoben (Oskar Paris & Christian Prehal).

Welcome new PhD student Mohammad Torkamanzadeh! Mohammad did his Master at University of Twente and will be working on electrochemical desalination via 2D materials.

New paper published in ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Energineering on the use of iodide redox electrolytes for high performance electrochemical desalination. Our work explores the use of ceramic cation exchange membranes to overcome the limited permselectivity of polymeric membranes.

Welcome new student intern Bixian Ying! A Master student from Saarland University, she will be working on battery technology.
