Description:

Chemistry Department Seminar Series Presents Dr. Paul J. Sideris: "Solid State Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy of Anion-Exchangers and Battery-Related Materials"

The ability of NMR spectroscopy to obtain element-specific structural information at the local level, in addition to its sensitivity to motion occurring over a wide timescale, has provided unprecedented insight into the structure and dynamics of complex materials. Technological advancement ultimately resides in the fundamental understanding of the structural, chemical, and electronic changes of the various components of devices. Progress in two classes of materials will be outlined – those for environmental remediation of waste water, and those concerning energy conversion or storage. Several studies will be presented on a myriad of systems - layered double hydroxides (LDHs), nano-lithium titanium oxide, polymer electrolytes, electrolyte additives, bismuth fluorides, LiMPO4 (M = Fe, Co, Ni, Mn), iodine-doped pentacene for photovoltaics – where  solid state NMR has refined structural models and elucidated local chemistry.
