Featured Speaker: Eric Majzoub, Ph.D., Associate Director, Center for Nanoscience, Professor of Physics and Astronomy, Joint Appointment, Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of Missouri – St. Louis

Physics professor and Associate Director of UMSL’s Center for Nanoscience, Eric Majzoub, introduces the basic ideas behind modern energy storage materials used for transportation and discusses modern approaches for tailoring these materials’ properties to meet our growing 21st century needs. He focuses on hydrogen storage materials for proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells, and briefly discusses related battery materials in this fascinating look at the physics and chemistry of storing energy at the nanoscale.

PEGSStructs-650The Chemistry and Physics of Energy Storage Materials at the Nanoscale is a Science in St. Louis Series partnership between The Academy of Science of St. Louis, SLCL, the Photosynthetic Research Antenna Center (PARC), Washington University’s Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement (under a St. Louis project grant). Science in St. Louis is based upon work supported as part of the Photosynthetic Antenna Research Center (PARC), an Energy Frontier Research Center funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, Office of Basic Energy Sciences under Award Number DE-SC0001035. We also would like to thank the National Science Foundation for support awarded to Kaitlyn Faries through the Graduate Research Fellowship Program under Award Number DGE-1143954.
