"Advancing Rational Synthesis Through Investigation of Kinetic Pathways and Metastable Compounds"

Friday September 15th, 2017 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Historically, synthetic methods used to make solid-state compounds produced thermodynamically stable products (generally those found in phase diagrams). These methods require large amounts of energy, long times, and limit the ability to isolate kinetically stable products. By exploring a wider range of reaction conditions where kinetic pathways can be accessed advanced synthesis techniques and a […]

"Ion Traps and Optical Modelling: A Potential Relationship in Electrochromics"

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 […]

"Ultra-Thin Transition Metal Dichalcogenides for Solar Energy Conversion: Towards Efficient, Low Cost Devices"

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 […]
