Prof. Ted Sargent, Univ. of Toronto, ECE
Tremendous progress in the cost-effective conversion of solar and wind energy into electrical power brings about a new challenge: the massive (seasonal-scale) storage of energy.
We focus on using computational materials science, spectroscopies including ultrafast and synchrotron, and advances in materials chemistry, to create new catalysts for CO2 reduction and oxygen evolution.

Seminar: Inorganic Chemistry | August 25 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have resurfaced as functional inorganic materials for their diverse applications including transistor-type devices, sensors, and hydrogen evolution catalysis. We present a more recent category of layered materials we term tetrahedral transition metal chalcogenides (TTMCs) that display different functional behavior from TMDs. These layered TTMCs are built of... More >
