Volker Presser was accepted into the Royal Society of Chemistry as a Fellow (Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry = FRSC).
New paper published in Journal of Power Sources on the synthesis of vanadium sulfide / carbon electrospun, free-standing, binder-free electrodes for lithium-ion battery application. This work was in collaboration with the Max-Planck Institute for Iron Research (Christina Scheu) and the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (Angela Kruth).
Like every year, we have also in 2019 several contributions to Saarland University’s PhD day.
- Öznil Budak’s poster is entitled: “Carbide-derived Nb2O5 with an enhanced charge storage capacity for use as lithium-ion battery electrode”
- Mohammad Torkamanzadeh’s poster is entitled: “Electrochemical seawater desalination using nanolamellar metal carbides (Ti3C2 MXene)”
- Yuan Zhang’s poster is entitled: “Electrochemical stability of sodium chloride in H2O and D2O in nanoporous carbon electrodes”
Volker Presser present work at the Beilstein nanotechnology symposium (MXene at the frontier of the 2D materials world) in Mainz, Germany. His oral presentation is entitled “Electrochemical water desalination with transition metal carbides and dichalcogenides”.
Samantha Husmann presents work at the 236th ECS Meeting in Atlanta, United States of America. Her talk is entitled “Sulfidation of electrospun vanadium oxide fiber mats for lithium-ion battery electrodes”
Welcome our new PhD student Lei Wang! Being a CSC scholar, he will explore Faradaic materials for electrochemical water treatment.
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”.
