Nano materials and thin films for electrochemical energy storage and conversion



Lithium Battery Projects

  • High capacity anode materials. Intercalation process of lithium in graphite, Si nano-particles (SiNPs) and Si nano wires (SiNWs) alloys in liquid non-aqueous solutions and polymer electrolytes.
  • Supercapacitors, DLC and HDLC.
  • Lithium-Sulfur batteries, fundamental understanding of processes and degradation mechanisms.
  • Study of mass and charge transport in composite polymer electrolytes and in single ion Li polymer electrolyte conductors.
  • Three dimension printed lithium battery.


Fuel Cells projects

  • Synthesis and characterization of platinum based nano catalysts for hydrogen oxidation and oxygen reduction in fuel cells applications.
  • Development and characterization of a low cost proton conducting membrane (PCM) and composite proton exchange membranes for high temperature applications.
  • Development and characterization of nano platinum and ruthenium based alloy catalysts for methanol and ethylene glycol oxidation.
  • Study of Oxygen Reduction Reaction (ORR) on Pt electrode and Pt electrode contaminated by Ru.
