Symposium on Two-dimensional Nanomaterials 2015

10-11 March 2015, Melbourne, Australia

alt

Two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials, are emerging new class of nanomaterials with many fascinating properties and applications. This two-day event provides an ideal networking opportunity for researchers to communicate on their latest research.

The areas of focus for this meeting will include (but are not limited to) both advances in fundamental physics, chemistry, materials science, biology and computer modelling of 2D materials, including graphene, BN, MoS2 and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) nanosheets, but also their applications in functional materials. Applications in areas of energy, the environment, nanomedicine and sensing are welcomed.

Professor Yury Gogotsi, Drexel University (USA) will give a Keynote Lecture at the Symposium on Two-dimensional Nanomaterials in Melbourne - "Two-Dimensional Carbides and Nitrides (MXenes): Synthesis, Properties and Electrochemical Applications" on Tuesday, March 10, 2015. Also he will give an invited talk at a post-conference Workshop at the Institute for Frontier Materials, Deakin University, Geelong, on "Capacitive Energy Storage Systems Utilizing Carbon Nanomaterials”.

Two-dimensional (2D) solids – the thinnest materials available to us – offer unique properties and a potential path to device miniaturization. The most famous example is graphene, which is an atomically thin layer of carbon atoms bonded together in-plane with sp2 bonds. Recently, an entirely new family of 2D solids – transition metal carbides (Ti2C, Ti3C2, Nb4C3, etc.) and carbonitrides – was discovered by Drexel University scientists.1,2 Selective etching of the A-group element from a MAX phase results in formation of 2D Mn+1Xn solids, labeled “MXene”. Eleven different carbides and carbonitrides have been reported to date.2-5 Structure and properties of numerous MXenes have been predicted by the density functional theory, showing that MXenes can be metallic or semiconducting (up to 2 eV band gap), depending on their surface termination. Their elastic constants along the basal plane are expected to be higher than that of the binary carbides. Oxygen or OH terminated MXenes, are hydrophilic, but electrically conductive. Hydrazine, urea and other polar organic molecules can intercalate MXenes leading to an increase of the c lattice parameter of MXenes.3 When dimethyl sulfoxide was intercalated into Ti3C2, followed by sonication in water, a stable colloidal solution of single- and few-layer flakes was produced. One of the many potential applications for 2D Ti3C2 is in electrical energy storage devices, such as batteries, Li-ion capacitors and supercapacitors.4,6 Cations ranging from Na+ to Mg2+ and Al3+ intercalate MXenes. Ti3C2 paper electrodes, produced by vacuum assisted filtration of an aqueous dispersion of delaminated Ti3C2, show a higher capacity than graphite anodes and also can be charged/discharged at significantly higher rates. They also demonstrate very high intercalation capacitance (up to 900 F/cm3) in aqueous electrolytes.

ICEnSM 2017. 2017 International Conference on Energy Storage Materials, Shenzhen, China, November 18-21, 2017

The First International Conference on Energy Storage Materials Professor Yury Gogotsi from Drexel University, USA, has won the 2017 Energy Storage Materials Award, which is awarded by the journal Energy Storage Materials. The Award will be presented to Professor Gogotsi at the ICEnSM 2017 (2017 International Conference on Energy Storage Materials), which will be held in Shenzhen, China, on Nov. 18-21, 2017.

 
Congratulations to professor Yury Gogotsi for being named 2017 Highly Cited Researcher in two categories!

altHis research ranks among the top 1% most cited works in his field and during its year of publication, earning the mark of exceptional impact. This year is the first time Yury Gogotsi made this list in two categories - Materials Science and Chemistry.

 
Nanodiamonds Can Prevent Lithium Battery Fires

Nanodiamonds in the electrolyte solution of lithium ion batteries prevent the formation of dendrites that cause runaway heat-up resulting in fires. Source: Drexel University and Tsinghua UniversityScientists researching battery-related fires and explosions, such as the incidents that got Samsung Galaxy Note 7s banned from airline flights last year, took the first step toward preventing the fires when they traced the source of the runaway heat buildup to small dendrites that form between the anode and cathode. Now a materials specialist at Drexel University (Philadelphia) has proposed a low-cost, easy way to prevent the dendrites from forming.

Partial breaking of the Coulombic ordering of ionic liquids confined in carbon nanopores

An international team of researchers, including Drexel's Yury Gogotsi, PhD, observed that ions will forgo their typical alternating charge ordering when they are forced to jam into a small, sub-nanometer-sized, space — a behavior modification not unlike people relinquishing personal space in order to pack into a crowded subway car. The discovery could lead to safer energy storage devices and better water filtration membranes.In their most recent paper in Nature Materials researcher from Drexel University led by prof. Yury Gogotsi showed that Coulombic ordering reduces when the pores can accommodate only a single layer of ions. The non-Coulombic ordering is further enhanced in the presence of an applied electric potential.
