Electrochemical Capacitance under Confinement: Implications for Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion

Electrochemical Capacitance under Confinement: Implications for Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion
Abstract: Many layered materials of interest for electrochemical energy storage and conversion applications are flexible hosts whose interlayers can be expanded to accommodate not just ions but also solvents, organic molecules, polymers, and organometallics. When these “hybrid” materials are placed ... [more]

Artificial Intelligence for Engineering Design and Computational Mechanics

Engineered systems are an indispensable part of our modern life with far-reaching applications that include aerial and ground transportation, electronics, large-scale structures, and medicine. The ever-evolving societal, environmental, and cultural awareness calls for significantly complex systems ... [more]

Metal energy carriers: renewable fuels of the future

Metal powder has superior energy density compared to fossil fuels and hydrogen. Therefore, metal powders have gained interest as a material for energy storage. The main benefits of metal fuels are that they do not produce CO2 emissions during combustion, they have the potential to be retrofitted in ... [more]

Growth of Mg-aluminate spinel at MgO- Al2O3 contacts: experiment, nature, and some theory

In this presentation the formation of spinel (MgAl2O4) by reaction between periclase (MgO) and corundum (Al2O3) is addressed. The reaction MgO + Al2O3 => MgAl2O4 may be regarded as a model case for diffusive phase transformations in oxide systems. All phases involved are moderately to highly ... [more]
