Electrifying Material and Chemical Synthesis
Featuring Long Luo, Department of Chemistry, Wayne State University

Electrochemical synthesis is a powerful tool for formulating functional materials and molecules because it offers an additional level of control over the synthesis relative to its chemical counterpart by fine-tuning mass transfer, potential, or current. Furthermore, electrochemical synthesis also allows the convenient analysis of chemical reaction thermodynamics and kinetics using the current signal generated during the electrochemical synthesis. In this talk, two recent advancements in electrochemical synthesis and their applications will be presented: (1) Electrochemical gelation of quantum dots for gas sensing and (2) Alternating current electrolysis for organic synthesis.

This is the first time we are having the Tuesday seminar in person and online. We may not be able to deliver the seminar at the best quality through Zoom, but we will try our best to set it up well.
