New paper published in Carbon on the synthesis and electrochemical application of carbon spherogels. This work was in collaboration with the group of Nicolas Hüsing (spearheaded by Michael Elsaesser) at the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg, Austria.
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”.
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.
New paper published in ACS Applied Energy Materials on the interlayer deprotonation of proton-substituted sodium titanate.
New paper published in Journal of Materials Chemistry A on the use of sodium vanadyl phosphate as electrode material for sodium ion removal via electrochemical desalination.
New a paper published in Langmuir on the ability to track solvation / desolvation or other constitutional changes with eQCM for carbon or insertion/intercalation materials. This work was in collaboration with Guang Feng (Huazhong University of Science and Technology) and Christian Prehal (Graz University of Technology).
New paper published in ACS Applied Energy Materials on the facile use of free-standing and binder-free hybrid fiber mats composed of vanadium oxide and carbon. The obained electrodes show promising performance for lithium-ion and sodium-ion battery applications.
New paper published in Chemistry – A European Journal on promising strategies to hybridize electrically conductive nanocarbon and metal oxides with high ion intercalation capacity.
