Abstract: 

There are a range of challenges for the synthesis of new solid materials in the area of energy technologies, for example in solar fuel production and in efficient energy conversion devices such as fuel cells. This presentation will address new materials for photocatalysis using visible light, a chemically-driven nanostructuring approach to new oxide electrocatalysts and a method to identify candidate solid oxide fuel cell cathodes integrating computation and experiment.
