01/2018: Martin gives a talk at the French Adsorption Society

Group leader Martin Oschatz has attended the 7th annual meeting of the french adsorption society (Journées de l’Association Française de l’Adsorption) in Marseille and gave the keynote lecture entitled "Pore Design in Nanocarbon Materials for Adsorption and Energy Storage". We thank the french adsorption society very much for organizing a great meeting and for giving us the opportunity to present our work!

12/2017: Runyu`s paper published in Advanced Sustainable Systems

Our paper entitled "Ordered Mesoporous Carbons with High Micropore Content and Tunable Structure Prepared by Combined Hard and Salt Templating as Electrode Materials in Electric Double-Layer Capacitors" has been published in Advanced Sustainable Systems. Together with the group of Prof. Volker Presser (Leibniz Institute for New Materials and Saarland University) we report the synthesis and use of our novel micro- and ordered mesoporous carbon materials in supercapacitors with different electrolytes. Congratulations to PhD student Runyu Yan who is the main author of this work!

11/2017: Martin and Milena give talks at FU Berlin

Martin and Milena were invited to join the seminar of the group of Prof. Christina Roth at the FU Berlin. Martin gave the talk entitled "Adsorption phenomena and energy storage on nanoporous carbon materials". Milena presented her recent results with the talk entitled "Illuminating the principles of glucose partial oxidation in aqueous solution with molecular oxygen using model gold catalysts on carbonaceous supports". Thanks to Christina for the invitation!

11/2017: Review article selected for the themed collection 2017 Energy and Environmental Science HOT articles

Our Review Article "A search for selectivity to enable CO2 capture with porous adsorbents" has been selected for the themed collection 2017 Energy and Environmental Science HOT articles.

10/2017: Martin gives a talk at UniCat Symposium

Martin was invited by the german catalysis Cluster of Excellence “Unifying Concepts in Catalysis“ (UniCat). In their symposium he gave the talk entitled "Influence of Pore Structure and Surface Chemistry of Nanostructured Carbons on their Properties as Support Materials in Heterogeneous Catalysis".

Energy and Environmental Utilization of Carbon Nanomaterials

The main area of research in our group is the development of nanostructured carbon materials with tailored properties for energy and environmental applications. Especially nanoporous materials with high internal porosity are of interest because they combine large available surface area of several 1000 m2/g with high chemical/thermal stability and electrical conductivity. Suchlike structures are key components in future energy storage applications, gas purification, and as support materials for metal nanoparticles in heterogeneous catalysis and can thus contribute to a sustainable development of our societies` energy balance.

We use advanced templating approaches on the nanoscale to tailor the pore size, pore geometry, and pore connectivity of these materials with high precision. Furthermore, heteroatom doping is used to modify the electronic properties and surface chemistry of the carbon framework. The performance of the designed carbon materials in gas adsorption, electrochemical energy storage (batteries and supercapacitors), and heterogeneous catalysis are linked to their textural and electronic properties. In this way, a better understanding of the structure-performance relationships can be achieved for the respective applications.
