  1. 1. Mesoporous Materials for Fast Charging Electrochemical Energy Storage

    Author : Giulio Calcagno; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; electrochemical energy storage; redox-active electrolytes; mesoporous carbon; hybrid supercapacitors; fast charging storage; ordered mesoporous materials; mesoporous titanium dioxide; lithium-ion battery;

    Abstract : High performing electrochemical energy storage (EES) devices are needed to cope with the increasing energy requirements of modern society. Electrode materials must store lots of energy, charge/discharge fast and be environmentally friendly. READ MORE

  2. 2. Nanostructured Catalysts and Electrode Materials for PEM Fuel Cells

    Author : Kjell Wikander; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; PEMFC; mesoporous; alkylthiol; alkylamine; carbon; microemulsion; Fuel cell; surfactants; nanoparticles; electron microscopy; Pt; nanocasting; silica; cathode; phase transfer method; oxygen reduction;

    Abstract : The Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) is a promising energy converting technology for powering automotives and electrical equipment using hydrogen gas as fuel and producing water as the only exhaust. The active carbon-supported platinum catalyst present in the electrodes limits the maximum power generation in state-of-the-art PEMFCs due to platinum’s poor activity for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) taking place at the cathode.
