The Wonderful World of Solid-state Materials:
Applications to Energy Conversion
Krishnan Rajeshwar, Ph.D.
Distinguished University Professor
Associate Dean of Science
University of Texas at Arlington
Solid-state chemistry principles underpin many technologically-important areas such as batteries, supercapacitors, and solar cells. The application of solid-state chemistry of electrode materials in photoelectrochemical (PEC) cells has opened new and exciting opportunities in energy conversion. One application is enabling the conversion of environmentally-harmful CO2 into environmentally-friendly fuels, chemicals, and oxygen.
In this presentation, Dr. Rajeshwar describes work in his laboratory related to carbon and oxide semiconductor nanocomposites driving multi-electron processes (such as CO2 reduction).
Krishnan Rajeshwar is the founding director of the Center for Renewable Energy Science & Technology and a Fellow of the Electrochemical Society, for which he currently serves as its president. He is a past editor of the Electrochemical Society's Interface and currently serves on the editorial boards of several electrochemical journals. Professor Rajeshwar is the author of more than 350 refereed and well-cited publications and has written and/or edited books, special issues of journals and conference proceedings on energy conversion.
