New paper published in Current Opinion in Green and Sustainable Chemistry on wastewater treatment using semiconductor photocatalysts
New paper published in Current Opinion in Green and Sustainable Chemistry on “Recent advances in wastewater treatment using semiconductor photocatalysts”. Can’t decide if you like water remediation or photocatalysis/semiconductors more? They both make a great match! Read about synergies and future possibilities in our latest review article in Current Opinion in Green and Sustainable Chemistry. The team of Prof. Xiao Su (Jaeyoung Hong & Ki-Hyun Cho) and I explore this interesting interfacial research – interfacial in double meaning: at the interface of fluid and solid, and at the interface of material science/electrochemistry and water research. It is exciting to explore semiconductors, for example, to target emerging contaminants, such as perfluorinated compounds.
Dr. Samantha Husmann particpates at the Lindau Nobel Laureate meeting
Dr. Samantha Husmann will attend the prestigious 2022 Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting this week. She is one of only 611 young scientists selected in a highly competitive process from across the globe. This year, the topic is chemistry, perfectly reflected by Samantha’s research on next generation electrochemical materials (including, but not limited to, Prussian blue and Prussian blue analogues). Her positive energy and visionary research perspective will enrich the LINO22!
Mohammad Torkamanzadeh presents work at the CIMTEC on electrochemical desalination with MXene
Mohammad Torkamanzadeh gives an oral presentation entitled “MXene for Electrochemical Water Desalination” at the 15th International Ceramics Congress CIMTEC in Perugia, Italy.
Alumna Dr. Yuan Zhang receives Feodor Lynen Fellowship
Immensely proud of my former Ph.D. student and now Dr. Yuan Zhang for being awarded the prestigious Feodor Lynen Fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation! She will join the team of Yury Gogotsi and her work will relate to MXene. Looking forward to strengthening also trilateral opportunities between the US, China, and Germany!
