  1. 1. Norbornadienes for Solar Thermal Energy Storage and New Applications

    Author : Ambra Dreos; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermal energy storage; molecular logic; Solar energy; molecular switch- es; energy conversion; quadricyclane; molecular keypad locks; norbornadiene;

    Abstract : The energy demand worldwide is steadily increasing, therefore it is fundamental to efficiently utilise renewable energy resources. Energy storage technologies are partic- ularly relevant in order to be able to exploit renewable energy resources such as solar energy, since these are typically intermittent and not evenly distributed.

  2. 2. Molecular Solar Thermal Energy Storage System: Evaluation of Different Candidates

    Author : Zhihang Wang; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy storage and release; Vinylheptafulvene; Catalyst; Quadricyclane; Solar Energy; Thermal dynamics; Molecular switches; Azobenzene; Norbornadiene; Energy conversion; Dihydroazulene;

    Abstract : The development of solar energy can potentially meet the growing requirements for a global energy system beyond fossil fuels, however necessitates new scalable technologies for solar energy storage. One approach is the development of energy storage systems based on molecular photoswitches, so-called molecular solar thermal energy storage (MOST). READ MORE

  3. 3. Exploring Devices for Molecular Solar Thermal Energy Storage Systems

    Author : Zhihang Wang; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; energy storage; norbornadiene quadricyclane photoswitches; photochromic molecule; Solar energy; energy conversion; dihydroazulene vinylheptafulvene photoswitches;

    Abstract : The sun is considered to be one of the most abundant and renewable sources of energy. During recent last decades, technologies for solar energy capture and storage have been significantly investigated. An attractive way to store solar light, is to use photochromic molecules that can capture and store solar energy in chemical bonds. READ MORE

  4. 4. Norbornadienes for molecular solar thermal energy storage

    Author : Maria Quant; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; energy storage; solar energy; norbornadiene - quadricyclane photo switches; synthesis of norbornadienes.;

    Abstract : Over the last decade, there has been great scientific progress in terms of harvesting solar energy but the area of storing energy is still facing challenges. One approach to store solar energy is via photoinduced isomerization of chemical bonds, referred to as molecular solar thermal energy storage (MOST). READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling Chemical Reactions : Theoretical Investigations of Organic Rearrangement Reactions

    Author : Per-Erik Larsson; Sten Lunell; Nessima Salhi-Benachenhou; Olle Matsson; Osvaldo Goscinski; Ian H. Williams; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Quantum chemistry; Kvantkemi; Quantum chemistry; Kvantkemi; Quantum Chemistry; Kvantkemi;

    Abstract : Chemical reactions are ubiquitous and very important for life and many other processes taking place on earth. In both theoretical and experimental studies of reactivity a transition state is often used to rationalise the outcome of such studies. READ MORE
