Yuan Zhang and Volker Presser present work at the German-Japanese Symposium on the Development and Technology of Carbon Materials of the German Ceramic Society in Würzburg, Germany. Volker Presser’s talk is entitled “Next-generation cell concepts for capacitive deionization using carbon electrodes” and Yuan Zhang’s talk is entitled “Electrochemical stability of sodium chloride in H2O and D2O in nanoporous carbon”.
Welcome new student intent Kathleen Frisella from Oregon State University. Being enrolled in the ATLANTIS program, she will be supporting our research on next-generation desalination technologies.
Volker Presser gives a seminar talk at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, Poland, entitled “Nano design of electroactive materials to store energy and desalinate water”.
Pattarachai Srimuk has successfully defended his thesis entitled “Faradaic electrode materials for next-generation electrochemical water desalination”. Read his thesis online!
Welcome visiting PhD student Smita Talande! She will be exploring electrochemical materials for energy storage and comes from the Palacký University Olomouc in the Czech Republic.
Volker Presser gives a seminar talk at University of Manchester, UK, entitled “Capacitive deionization unchained”.
Volker Presser gives a seminar talk at Lancaster University, UK, entitled “Nano design of electroactive materials to store energy and desalinate water”.
Aura Tolosa presents work at the 14th International conference on materials chemistry (MC14) in Birmingham, UK. Her talk is entitled “One-pot synthesis of electrospun hybrid fibers as binder-free electrodes for lithium-ion batteries”.
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”.
