Join us for this PSI seminar with guest speaker Associate Professor Jakob Kibsgaard.
Catalysis holds a key in transforming our energy sector and chemical industry to rely on sustainable energy such as solar and wind energy. However, new and improved catalysts are needed to fulfil this vision. In this talk, Professor Kibsgaard will present on his recent and ongoing work on understanding and developing new electrocatalysts. Two examples will be: 1) size dependence and isotope labelled experiments will be presented for mass-selected NiFe nanoparticles for oxygen evolution under alkaline conditions and 2) Lithium-Mediated electrochemical ammonia synthesis.
This event will be taking place online and details of how to join this event will be made available shortly.
Associate Professor Jakob Kibsgaard
Organisation: The Technical University of Denmark
Biography: Jakob Kibsgaard is currently Associate Professor at The Technical University of Denmark, which he joined in 2016 after a position as associate staff scientist at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University, USA. He received his M.S. in Material Physics-Chemistry and Ph.D. in Physics and Nanoscience from Aarhus University, Denmark. His research interest includes developing and understanding catalysts for chemical transformations in renewable energy and electro- and heterogeneous catalysis. In 2012 he was the recipient of the AkzoNobel Nordic Prize for Surface Chemistry.
