Dominik was invited as the keynote speaker for the AIST – Association for Iron & Steel Technology Northern Chapter Dinner Meeting last Thursday. The title of the talk was Grey, Blue, Green, Purple… The many colours of hydrogen” and sparked much interest.
Congratulations to PhD student Andrew Sellathurai and former PhD student Sreeman Mypati, Ph.D. for their new article published in Chemical Engineering Journal. Drew and Sreeman found out that graphene oxide is a superior stabilizer for the liquid phase exfoliation of graphite to graphene in water. They achieved yields of more than 20% which is considerably higher than previously reported. The product can be directly used for printing or synthesis of supercapacitor electrodes.

Dominik gave an invited presentation on “Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetry for the characterization of supercapacitors” at the 64th International Conference on Analytical Sciences and Spectroscopy (64th ICASS), Kingston, August 8-10, 2022.
Finally, after 2 years of pandemic restrictions, former graduate students Mahmoud Khademi, Sreeman Mypati and Andrew Sellathurai could attend their in-person convocation. Also on pic former grad student Srijit Nair (Escobedo group). Congratulations!!
Dominik Barz gave a talk entitled “2D Graphene Nanomaterials: Stable Aqueous Dispersions and their Application for Energy Storage Devices” at the Professor Raedle’s Center for Mass Spectroscopy and Optical Spectroscopy, Mannheim University, Germany. CeMOS is the largest research institute at a University of Applied Science in the province of Baden Wuertemberg.
Dominik Barz was the first in-person seminar speaker at Professor Presser’s Leibniz Institute for New Materials (INM) in Saarbruecken, Germany since the beginning of the pandemic. His talk was entitled “2D Graphene Nanomaterials: Stable Aqueous Dispersions and their Application for Energy Storage Devices”. This visit laid out the foundation for a future collaboration on capacitive deionization materials.
