Stopping Global Warming with Advanced Porous Materials [S-16-57]
|Location:||SUNY: Maxcy 104|
|Classes:||1 Session 1.5 hours|
|Dates:||Wed 2:00 PM 05/11|
Our society faces significant signs of global warming since the modern world has begun to burn fossil fuels excessively, thus releasing billions of tons of CO2 to our atmosphere. Replacing fossil fuels with “green” energy sources, such as hydrogen-fuel cells, may be the ultimate solution for all our energy problems. Imagine that our automobiles would emit only pure water instead of harmful greenhouse gases!
Join Clarkson University Professor of Chemistry Mario Wriedt as he presents current research into the development of advanced porous materials to store energy and also to “renew” our atmosphere. He will share insights from his laboratory’s research into design strategies of such materials and their characterization through X-ray methods. Mario is head of the functional material design and X-ray diffraction lab.
