Seminar on Nanoelectrochemistry Today
Kristina Tschulik of Ruhr University Bochum will give a virtual seminar titled "Nanoelectrochemistry: Unravelling nanoparticle (re-)activity by single entity electrochemistry" on Zoom from 3:30-4:30 p.m. today. The talk is free and open to the public.
Tschulik holds a 'Diplom' in chemistry from TU Dresden, Germany, and performed her doctoral studies on magnetic field-assisted structured electrodeposition at IFW Dresden. Afterwards, she joined the University of Oxford as a Marie Curie IEF post-doctoral researcher, working on single nanoparticle electrochemistry and quantitative physico-chemical analysis of electrochemical reactions. In 2015, Professor Tschulik moved to Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, as a Junior Professor, where she holds the Chair of Analytical Chemistry II since 2018. This year she was elected as a member of the North-Rhine-Westphalia Academy of Sciences, Arts and Humanities and received a Starting Grant of the European Research Commission. Professor Tshculik's research focusses on characterizing the physical properties and intrinsic chemical (re-)activity of functional nanomaterials for renewable energy technologies, based on advanced electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical methods.
Nanomaterials have been the focus of major research efforts for more than two decades. The great potential of electrochemistry to characterize these particles in terms of both their physical properties and chemical reactivity, however, has hardly been explored.
Tschulik will speak about how the ease of sample preparation and the comparably high speed and low cost of nano-electrochemistry make it a useful complement or even alternative to the established nanoparticle characterization methods, like SEM or TEM. The number of particles that can conveniently be analyzed ranges from individual ones to ensembles comprising myriads of nanoparticles, depending on the techniques used. In this seminar, several examples will be presented.
