Friday September 22nd, 2017 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Literature seminar abstract Dynamic, or “smart” windows are an emerging energy-saving technology that have the potential to reduce heating, cooling, and lighting energy needs for residential and commercial buildings by about ten percent.1, However, the active materials in electrochromic devices tend to degrade over time. That is, they lose the ability to reversibly change from […]

Allan Isenberg Presents:

Friday September 22nd, 2017 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Literature seminar abstract Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have been shown to be highly efficient materials for photoelectrochemical solar energy to electricity and chemical fuel conversion.1 Due to their unique layered structure, bulk TMD crystals can be easily exfoliated into single and multilayer thick flakes and deposited on to conducting substrates.  However, electrodes made from exfoliated […]

Redox switchable catalysis

Paula Diaconescu Presents:

Tuesday October 31st, 2017 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Switchable catalysis has received increased attention lately because it holds the promise of mimicking the temporal and spatial control exhibited by natural systems. We are studying a chemical method to shuttle between two catalyst states, by switching the oxidation state of iron in ligands containing a ferrocene backbone. This idea is applied to the ring […]
