Description

2D Nanomaterials & 3D Printing in Electrochemistry

Energy Seminar, Friday 6th October 11.30-13.00, FST Training and Development Centre, A76 Science and Technology Building

Professor Martin Pumera (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore)

In this talk I will discuss various electrochemical properties of 2D nanomaterials, from graphene to transition metal dichalcogenides to black phosphorus. The electrochemistry of graphene and its related materials is far more interesting and complex than anticipated, especially when one depicts graphene based on the IUPAC definition. This is because the real world graphene-based materials contain defects, adatoms, and various oxygen functional groups. I will discuss our recent research on the electrochemistry of layered transition metal dichalcogenides and black phosphorus. We will show several examples of electrochemical gas sensing, in mixture of gasses as CO2, water vapors, acetone, methanol and others. I will also discuss how 3D printing technology can lead into advances in the electrochemical devices construction.

The presenter

Prof. Martin Pumera is a tenured Associate Professor at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore since 2010. He has been named “2017 Highly Cited Researcher” by Clarivate Analytics (former Thomson-Reuters).

Martin received his PhD at Charles University, Czech Republic, in 2001. After two postdoctor al stays (in the USA, Spain), he joined the National Institute for Materials Science, Japan, in 2006 for a tenure-track arrangement and stayed there until Spring 2008 when he accepted a tenured position at NIMS. In 2009, Prof. Pumera received a ERC-StG award. Prof. Pumera has broad interests in nanomaterials and microsystems, in the specific areas of electrochemistry and synthetic chemistry of carbon nanomaterials, nanotoxicity, micro and nanomachines and 3D printing. He is Editor-in-Chief of Appl. Mater. Today (Elsevier, Cite Score 6.97), member of Editorial board of Chem. Eur. J., Electrochem. Commun., Electrophoresis, Electroanalysis, The Chemical Records, ChemElectroChem and eight other journals. He has published over 500 articles, which received over 20 000 citations (h-index of 70).
