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”.
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.
New paper published in ACS Applied Energy Materials on the interlayer deprotonation of proton-substituted sodium titanate.
Welcome new master student Lorena Ramirez. She is enroled in the AMASE program of Saarland University at the Department of Materials Science and engineering.
