Chemistry & Biochemistry Department Seminar (Conference/Workshop/Seminar)

Ranjit T. Koodali, Department of Chemistry, University of South Dakota, Vermillion, SD will present a seminar entitled, "Cubic Periodic Mesoporous Materials".
Periodic mesoporous materials have attracted significant attention during the past decade for catalytic applications. Their high surface area, large pore volume, and the ability to tune the pore sizes make them attractive for applications ranging from catalysis to drug delivery and adsorption. Among the various classes of periodic mesoporous materials, the cubic phase, MCM-48 is thought to be an interesting material due to its interwoven and continuous three-dimension pore system. This is favored to provide enhanced diffusion of the molecular reactants and enhance molecular trafficking.

The seminar will report efforts in the direction to utilize MCM-48 as a support to facilitate the high dispersion of (photo)active species for the photocatalytic splitting of water to generate hydrogen and for selected catalytic oxidation, coupling, and reduction reactions.
Everyone is welcome to attend!
