Welcome to our team, Panyu Ren! Ms. Ren is a graduate from the Chinese Northwestern Polytechnical University and will be working on flow electrodes.
New paper published in ACS Nano on the significantly reduced wear on a metal surface after electro-spray coating with MXene. The work was spearheaded by colleages from Austria (TU Vienna) and Saarland University (MECS), and capitalized on the synergy of collaboration between Austria, Chile, China, Germany, and the United States of America. Our work also was featured in the news, for example:
New paper published in Cell Reports Physical Science on the use of a conventional fuel cell concept, enhanced by an additional flow channel, for the facile and continuous desalination of seawater. The device consumes oxygen and hydrogen gas and produced electricity, desalted water, and an acid/base couple which conveniently can be used to generate heat.
Volker Presser presents on May 12th at the CDI&E 2021 conference work on desalination fuel cells with the title “Charge-transfer enabling of electrochemical interfaces: the third generation of capacitive deionization”.
Our collaborative MXene tribology work to-be-published in ACS Nano tracks media attention:
Volker Presser is supporting the junior research academy of the German Research Foundation (DFG) “Keramische Werkstoffe: Von den Grundlagen zur Anwendung” with a talk on how to “Boldly go into the unknown”.
We have several contributions to the 29th ISE Topical Meeting Energy and water: electrochemistry in securing the sustainable society development. On April 19th, Yuan Zhang is giving an oral presentation on “Sub-nanometer carbon confinement: pore size effect on ion permselectivity and selectivity”. On April 21st, Volker Presser is giving an oral presentation on “Beyond the double-layer: charge-transfer processes for high-performance desalination batteries”. Also, Stefanie Arnold is giving an oral poster presentation on “Antimony alloying electrode for high-performance sodium removal: how to use a battery material not stable in aqueous media for saline water remediation”.
