"Towards a Paradigm of Materials by Design: The Crystal Chemistry of Perovskite Halide Semiconductors"

Friday January 27th, 2017 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Research seminar In less than a decade of dedicated research, perovskite halide semiconductors such as methylammonium lead iodide (CH3NH3PbI3) have achieved photovoltaic power conversion efficiencies rivaling those of conventional compound semiconductors, and present exciting opportunities for fundamental and application-based materials research. In the wake of rapid growth and development of yet-higher-efficiency devices, the fundamental chemical […]

"Metal–Organic Framework-based Materials for Localized Generation of Nitric Oxide at Biointerfaces"

Friday February 17th, 2017 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Research seminar Nitric oxide (NO) is an endogenously produced molecule that has been demonstrated to aid in the prevention of thrombus formation and promote accelerated wound healing.1,2  Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are a class of crystalline materials that consist of organic ligands coordinated to metal centers. Certain copper-based MOFs have demonstrated the ability to enhance the […]

"Mass Spectrometric Innovations for Tissue Imaging and Direct Analysis"

Wednesday February 22nd, 2017 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Hach Distinguished Speaker.  Department Colloquium.

Sarah Tolbert Presents:

"Solution Processed Nanomaterials for Energy and Next Generation Devices"

Friday March 3rd, 2017 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Department Colloquium In this talk, we examine ways that solution processed nanostructured materials can be used to address both fundamental and practical issues relevant to next generation technology.  We begin with nanoporous materials for electrochemical energy storage.  Materials with appropriate porous architectures can be synthesized using either block-copolymer templating methods or using selective solution phase […]
