On Thursday, September 28th, Ted Sargent will be giving a seminar at the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP) at Caltech. The seminar will be from 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m in Chu Hall, Building 30 Helios in the Conference Room 206 & ZOOM.
With vast progress in solar-to-electricity conversion, large-scale energy storage will soon be a key bottleneck to continued growth in renewables deployment. Ted will update on some recent work in the development of heterogeneous electrocatalysts for the oxygen-evolution and CO2-reduction reactions. Ted will discuss joint efforts between computational chemistry and experimental catalyst synthesis and characterization; and will also discuss the catalysts’ incorporation into systems such as CO2 gas flow cells.
