Guest Lecture: Yogesh Surendranath from MIT

Wednesday, August 06, 2014 12:00pm - 1:00pm

"Mechanistic Insights into Electrocatalytic Fuel Formation & Combustion" - Yogesh Surendranath from MIT -- Wednesday, August 6th 2014; Noon; Barus & Holley 190 Hosted by: The Center for the Capture and Conversion of CO2 Abstract: The widespread utilization of renewable energy will require energy dense and cost-effective methods for its storage and recovery. This challenge could be met by pairing electrolytic reduction of carbon dioxide to liquid fuels with subsequent recombination of the fuel and O2 in a fuel cell.
