online seminar by Dr. Evan Wenbo Zhao: 'Development of New NMR Methods for Studying Electrocatalysis and Hyperpolarization' (Lecture)
- Monday 14 December 2020Add to my calendar
- from 12:00
dr. Evan Wenbo Zhao ( Grey Group, Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge , UK)
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is an extremely versatile spectroscopic technique with applications in chemistry, biology, physics and medicine. This talk will center around the development and applications of new NMR methods for studying electrocatalysis and improving the NMR sensitivity (known as hyperpolarization technique in the NMR language). In the first half of my talk, I will highlight my postdoctoral work on in situ NMR studies of organic redox flow batteries, followed by my PhD research on the development of parahydrogen-induced hyperpolarization by heterogeneous catalysis. In the second half of my talk, I will present my research proposal on developing new in situ NMR methods to understand reaction mechanisms of Li-mediated electrocatalytic synthesis of ammonia, and using electrocatalysis as a new approach to enhance the NMR sensitivity.
