Three dimensional nanostructured designs for lithium ion batteries
The reversible electrochemistry and the superior gravimetric and volumetric energy storage capacities of lithium ion batteries (LIBs) have propelled them as the dominant power source for a range of portable electronic ...
Carbon Sequestration through Biochar Soil Amendment: Experimental studies and mathematical modeling
Intentional amendment of soil with charcoal (called biochar) is a promising new approach to sequester atmospheric carbon dioxide and increase soil fertility. However, the environmental properties of biochars can vary with ...
Bilayer Approaches for Nanoparticle Phase Transfer
Nanoparticles (NPs) are often synthesized in organic solvents due to advantages of superior size and shape control obtainable in a non-polar environment. However, many applications featuring NPs require them to be in aqueous ...
Solvothermal Synthesis and Supported Catalysis of Polyanion-derived Metal Oxide Nanoparticles
Supported metal oxides (SMOs) are important catalytic materials that find numerous applications in important industrial processes. Improving the structural properties of SMOs is a challenging objective due to material ...
Novel approaches for the production of fuels and chemicals in Escherichia coli
Volatility of oil prices along with major concerns about climate change, oil supply security and depleting reserves have sparked renewed interest in the production of biofuels and biochemicals. While the carbohydrate portion ...
