Recent Trends in Synthesis and Characterization of Materials for Energy Storage


Dr. M.V. Reddy

- Affiliation:

Institute of Research Hydro-Québec, CETEES, Hydro-Québec, Canada

- Position:

Senior Researcher


Saturday, December 5 (15 Azar), 18:30


Functional materials will play an important role in the area of Energy and environmental, health and other advance applications. In my talk I will discuss various materials preparation, characterization techniques, fundamentals and applications specifically in area of batteries (Li, Na), electrolyte, supercapacitor and Technology. Various preparation methods of the battery materials and materials characterization techniques like Rietveld refinement X-ray diffraction, Neutron diffraction, X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XPS), SEM, TEM, XPS, Raman/IR density and BET surface area methods will be discussed. Use of electroanalytical studies like cyclic voltammetry, galvanotactic cycling and impedance spectroscopy techniques for testing and analysis and insitu and exsitu studies reaction mechanisms and voltage hysteresis and other applications of materials. Finally I will discuss the materials recovery techniques.
