Symposium 3

Materials for Energy Applications : (Novel energy materials including Hydrogen Storage,  Production, Hydrogen rich systems, Metal Hydrides at ambient  and extreme conditions )

A symposium dedicated to the wide range of materials with a focused application in the field of renewable and sustainable energy, is much needed which can connect the theory and experimental outcome spontaneously. Our symposium will be one such attempt in the field of energy research.  Our symposium will focus on novel materials that have attracted the focus of the scientific community in the vast field of energy materials. The applications of such materials will be having a broad view in the area of solar cell, photocatalytic water splitting, battery, hydrogen storage and fuel cells. Scientists doing their research in all the above area will be a getting a common platform to showcase their latest findings, which all will be attached through a common string named Energy. The symposium will be a mixture of theory and experiments with a strong view of bridging the gap between them. An important by-product from this meeting could lead to an improved understanding and performance of materials at ambient and extreme conditions.

Topics to be covered by the symposium:

 - Hydrogen Storage,  Production, Hydrogen rich systems, Complex Metal Hydrides
 - Carbon materials of different dimensionalities – present and next generation
 - Application of Diamond in Energy Research
 - Oxide materials and their application in energy research
 - Two-dimensional materials for energy production and storage
 - Perovskite based materials for solar cell
 - Photocatalytic materials for hydrogen production
 - Novel materials for enhance battery performance
 - Heterostructured nano-materials and nanocomposits
