Time：14th November, 2018, 10:00 am
Venue： Conference Room 201, Basic Energy Science Building
Lecturer：LI Dan, Department of Chemical Engineering, Melbourne School of Engineering, The University of Melbourne, Australia
On the basis of our research on graphene-based materials in the past decade, this talk will discuss how understanding the interactions between graphene and electrolytes can underpin the R&D of graphene-based materials from the following aspects:
(1) How electrical double layer of graphene can be utilized to solve the solution processability of chemically converted graphene and to make solution-dispersible metal nanoparticle clusters;
(2) How ion electrosorption and transport experiments can be used to probe and quantify the nanostructure of layered graphene-based membranes;
(3) How layered graphene membranes with tunable interlayer distance was discovered and how they can be used as a unique experimental platform to study nanoionics and its applications for energy storage, water purification and chemical separation.
