Event details

Dr Ekaterina Fedorovskaya presents a seminar as part of the computational systems chemistry research section’s seminar series.

Carbon nanostructures have high conductivity, large surface area, and are often chemically inert.  These properties allow carbon nanostructures to be used in energy storage systems, such as supercapacitors and Li-ion batteries – as electrode materials, templates for deposition of electroactive components, or as conductive additives.  In addition, carbon surface can be functionalized with oxygen-containing groups.  This allows surface hydrophilicity and surface area to be changed, and also influences electrochemical properties of the electrode.  This seminar will focus on our recent work aimed at the synthesis and characterization of carbon nanostructures, functionalization of carbon surface, design of hybrid materials based on carbon nanostructures, and the use of this material in supercapacitors, li-ion batteries and electrochemical biosensors.
