Advanced Porous Materials on the Way to Stopping Global Warming [F-17-4]
|Location:||SUNY: Maxcy 104|
|Classes:||1 Session 1.5 hours|
|Dates:||Fri 2:30 PM 10/20|
Our society faces significant signs of global warming because the modern world has begun to excessively burn fossil fuels, thus releasing billions of tons of CO2 into our atmosphere. The ultimate solution for all our energy problems might be using alternative “green” energy sources instead, such as hydrogen-fuel cells. Imagine our automobiles emitting only pure water instead of harmful greenhouse gases, Join Mario Wriedt as he presents current research into the development of advanced porous materials to store energy and to “renew” our atmosphere. In addition, he will share insights from his laboratory’s research into design strategies of such materials and their characterization through X-ray methods.
Besides teaching, Mario Wriedt is head of the Functional Material Design and X-ray Diffraction Lab.
