This TSRC workshop focuses on mechanistic understanding and exploration of materials chemistry in electrochemical energy storage including batteries, solar cells, electrolyzers, and supercapacitors. Both organic and inorganic materials play critical roles in energy storage devices. Taking redox flow batteries as an example, redox active organic and inorganic electrolyte materials are charge storage carriers and their redox potential, charge capacity, and stability directly impact flow battery performance, which is also observed in supercapacitors and organic rechargeable batteries. In Li ion batteries, supporting electrolytes, electrolyte additives, electrode polymer binders, and organic solvents function in enabling fast charge transfer thus high conductivity, improving SEI stability, and improving battery cycling life. In solar cells and electrolyzers, well-defined catalysts have demonstrated powerful performance in storing renewable energy into chemical bonds.
It is fundamentally important to implement physical inorganic and organic chemistry in electrochemical energy storage. The primary task of the workshop is to invoke the in-depth discussion on how electronic and steric factors, solvents, and additives affect electrochemical characteristics of organic and inorganic materials in energy storage devices. Invited presentations will emphasize battery chemistries, spectroscopic studies, and computational modeling of energy storage related materials to understand their solution and interfacial chemistry in energy storage devices. The ultimate goal of the workshop aims to establish a structure-function relationship of energy storage related materials in representative energy storage devices. It is anticipated that the workshop, at atomic and molecular levels, will inspire creative solutions to existing challenges in current energy storage technologies, and spark novel ideas in developing new energy storage technologies.
Also note that virtual participation is by invitation only. If you are interested in attending a meeting, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer about
availability before registering.
We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering.
TSRC is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All in-person participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop.
