On-demand virtual event
Electrochemical processes in devices like solar cells, fuel cells, lithium batteries, and water desalination systems rely on the safe, efficient, and robust transport of anions and cations between electrodes — all made possible by polymer chemistry!
Join two experts working on advances in polymer technology for use in the next generation of ion transport systems. First, Alexei Sokolov, ORNL/UT Governor’s Chair and Professor of Chemistry and Physics at the University of Tennessee, will introduce you to this exciting time of progress in the field of polymer electrolytes.
Then, Michael A. Hickner, the Craig A. Rogerson Endowed Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at Michigan State University, will zoom out to describe how mechanically tough polymer membranes with high ionic conductivity control the flow of electrolytes in the ion transport system.
