CZTS (Cu2ZnSnS4) photocathode for solar energy conversion and storage 

Mondal, Animesh (2019-04-23)
Sunlight provides abundant, renewable energy on earth’s surface. Photoelectrochemical photovoltaic cells (PEPC) are one of the most convenient ways to capture this solar energy and convert into electricity. Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) ...

Graphene Based Nanostructured Materials for Electrochemical Energy Storage 

Kanungo, Rohit (2019-07-30)
The objective of this work is to gain fundamental insights into the reduction of graphene oxide (GO), chemical reduction induced self-assembly of graphene and assembly of novel three-dimensional graphene morphologies. It ...

Photo-assisted Adsorptive Desulfurization of Hydrocarbon Fuels over TiO2 and Ag-TiO2 

Sun, Xueni (2016-05-05)
Organic sulfur compounds are one of the most common impurities in crude oil which is widely used as transportation fuels such as gasoline, diesel and jet fuels. Sulfur in liquid hydrocarbon fuels is also considered as one ...

Preparation and Characterization of Activated Biochar for Lithium-Sulfur Battery Application 

Sajib, Sourov Kar (2017-08-29)
Utilization of low-value, abundant and sustainable biomass materials for high-value energy storage application was the main goal of this thesis. Energy storage for vehicle electrification and intermittent renewable energy ...

Synergistic Approach to the Stable Production of Solar Fuels by Coupling Urea Oxidation with Hydrogen Generation 

Zhao, Rong (2018-12-03)
A solar waste-to-fuels concept was presented to synergistically produce hydrogen fuel from visible sunlight while remediating urea wastewater. A cascade semiconductor-catalyst electrode assembly was designed to drive the ...

Synthesis of Janus Nanoparticles using a Packed Column and their Applications 

Hanley, Alan (2018-07-27)
Janus nanoparticles, nanoparticles with two regions of differing properties, have been of interest to researchers for the last 30 years. Differing surface regions of Janus nanoparticles allows for self-assembly into ...

Versatile and Potentially Scalable Method for Synthesis of Janus Nanoparticles 

Hanley, Alan (2016-05-04)
Researchers are constantly working toward developing “smarter” materials that can be designed or programed to do a certain task. Examples of such tasks would be self-assembling into an organized structure or targeting a ...
