Title :

Charge Transport and Catalysis Reactions at the Electrified Interfaces

Abstract :

Possibility of studying the properties of molecules or nanostructures at single enity level offers huge opportunities to tune structure property relationships at nanoscale. The problem with current state-of-the-art nanomaterials and energy research involving charge or electron transport at electrode|molecule interface as a key process is centered in the fact that no single experimental technique can independently provide complete information on nanoscale structure-property relationships. The development of fast, cost effective and structure sensitive characterization methods at single entity level is the target of much current nanotechnology research.


During this presentation, I will try to show the experimental framework (experimental technique and methodologies development) that I am planning to implement/develop in my future laboratory to address the key issue of nanoscale structure-property relationships under in-operando conditions.1-4
