Ohm’s Law, Lithium Batteries, and the Clean Energy Landscape

Abstract

The need for creating safe electrolytes for lithium batteries is significant given the continued safety problems associated with current lithium-ion batteries.  Nonflammable polymer electrolytes offer a possible solution but the rate of lithium ion transport is too low for practical applications.  In this talk, I will discuss some of the fundamental factors that limit ion transport in polymers.  Polymer electrolytes obey Ohm’s Law, i.e. in the limit of small applied potentials, the current generated at steady state is proportional to the applied potential.  The underpinnings of this observation, which remains to be established, will be discussed.   Will we discuss both homogeneous and nanostructured polymer electrolytes.  The talk will conclude with the relevance of these material in the emerging clean energy landscape.

Structural and Dynamic Characteristics of Supported Metal Catalysis at the Atomic Scale

Abstract

The use of heterogeneous catalysts for important chemical conversions ranging from pollution mitigation to energy production relies on the design of active catalytic sites consisting of metal nanostructures supported on high surface area oxide materials.  Key to design of these systems is the identification of active site geometries and compositions that are optimized for desired catalytic reactions. These active sites vary in structural diversity from single metal atoms on oxide supports to unique interfaces between faceted metal nanoparticles and oxide supports, making their characterization complex. This difficulty is further complicated because the exposure of oxide-supported metals to reactive environments can induce significant transformations in the structure of the metal, support, and interactions between the metal and support. The dynamic transformations in catalytic structures induced by exposure to reactions can cause significant changes in the reactivity of the structures, requiring detailed in-situ analysis to identify active site motifs. I will highlight a few examples where we exploit quantitative and in-situ spectroscopy and microscopy to characterize heterogeneous catalysts at atomic scale and identify how reactive conditions modify active site structures and relate this to catalytic performance.

Frank S. Bates, University of Minnesota

Frank S. Bates, a Regents professor at the University of Minnesota, will give the 32nd Ashton Cary Lecture at 4 p.m. March 1 in the MoSE Building (Room G011). His talk is titled “Sphericity and Symmetry Breaking in the Formation of Quasicrystals and Frank-Kasper Phases in Block Polymer Melts.” A reception will follow in MoSE Atrium 2.

Bates will also give a special lecture – “Toughened Thermoset Epoxy Plastics” – at 11 a.m. on March 2 in L1255 of Ford ES&T (with a reception at 10:30 a.m. in the L1 atrium).

March 1 Lecture:

“Sphericity and Symmetry Breaking in the Formation of Quasicrystals and Frank-Kasper Phases in Block Polymer Melts”

Abstract

Spherical objects ranging in size from metal atoms to micron scale colloidal particles to billiard balls tend to form regular close packed arrays with three-dimensional translational symmetry. This lecture will describe how nearly spherical nanoscale micelles, formed by self-assembled diblock copolymers, spontaneously evolve into a 2-dimensional dodecagonal quasicrystal (DDQC) following rapid cooling from the disordered liquid state. This aperiodic arrangement, characterized by rotational symmetry but not translational symmetry, transforms over time into a 3-dimensional Frank-Kasper (FK)  phase with local tetrahedral particle packing. This discovery suggests that certain forms of quasicrystalline order are non-equilibrium states generated by kinetically facilitated particle clustering in the supercooled liquid. Redistribution of polymer molecules between micelles through molecular diffusion appears to play a central role in these processes. Surprising analogies will be drawn between the heretofore unexplained formation of FK structures in soft materials, and in certain elemental metals (including manganese and uranium) and alloys, highlighting opportunities to better understand space filling in hard and soft materials by investigation of block polymers with precisely tuned molecular architectures.

March 2 Lecture:

“Toughened Thermoset Epoxy Plastics”

Block copolymers belong to a broad class of amphiphilic compounds that includes soaps, lipids and nonionic surfactants. These macromolecules assemble into micelles with molecular dimensions on the order of 5 to 50 nm in size when mixed with excess solvent that preferentially solvates one block type. This presentation will explore block copolymer micelle formation in commercial thermoset epoxy resins and the fundamental mechanisms that lead to fracture toughness in the thermally cured products. In-situ synchrotron small-angle x-ray scattering has confirmed cooperative cavitation of nanoscale rubbery micelles that triggers shear yielding as the energy absorbing mechanism that imparts extraordinary toughness without sacrificing stiffness or use temperature. Recent generalization of these concepts to complex epoxy formulations and the synergistic use of graphene and block copolymer micelles, resulting in a 20-fold increase in the strain-energy release rate over the neat plastic, will be described.

Self-activating heterogeneous catalysis:  Insights from surface organometallic chemistry

Abstract: Operando characterization implies interrogation of catalysts while they are actively converting reactants to products; under these conditions, surface sites are transformed from the pre-catalyst state into active sites. Large-scale industrial processes for olefin oligomerization, metathesis and polymerization operate with heterogeneous catalysts consisting of a transition metal oxide dispersed on a mechanically robust support. An intriguing feature of these catalysts is their ability to generate organometallic active sites spontaneously, upon exposure to olefin in the reactor. The low fraction of sites that are activated makes them difficult to study directly, but it is possible to create kinetically competent models by combining organometallic and surface chemistry. We have used this approach to explore the effect of the support on the reactivity and stability of organochromium and organorhenium complexes, and compared them to the behavior of dispersed, self-activating forms of chromium and rhenium oxides.

Bio: Scott received her B.Sc. in Chemistry from the University of Alberta (Canada) in 1987, and her Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry from Iowa State University in 1991, where she worked with J. Espenson and A. Bakac on the activation of O2 and organic oxidation mechanisms. She was a NATO Postdoctoral Fellow with Jean-Marie Basset at the Institut de recherches sur la catalyse (CNRS) in Lyon, France, before joining the faculty of the University of Ottawa (Canada) in 1994 as an Assistant Professor of Chemistry. She held an NSERC Women's Faculty Award, a Cottrell Scholar Award, a Union Carbide Innovation Award and was named a Canada Research Chair in 2001. She moved to the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2003, where she is currently holds the Duncan and Suzanne Mellichamp Chair in Sustainable Catalysis, with joint faculty appointments as a Distinguished Professor in both Chemical Engineering and Chemistry & Biochemistry. She was recently appointed the Ipatieff Lecturer in Catalysis at Northwestern University for 2017. Her research interests include surface organometallic chemistry, olefin polymerization, nanomaterials, biomass conversion, environmental catalysis and the development of new kinetic and spectroscopic methods to probe reaction mechanisms at surfaces. Scott is an Associate Editor for the journal ACS Catalysis.
