The Department of Physics would like to invite you to a talk on the Novel Applications of Nanomaterials through Material Chemistry and Engineering by Dr. Joselito Razal Deputy Director, ARC Future Fibres Hub and Associate Professor, Institute for Frontier Materials, Deakin University, Australia to be held on 22 June 2017, Thursday, 2:30 pm to 4 pm at CTC 118.

Abstract. Material chemistry aims to engineer nanomaterials to perform novel functions that do not exist in its bulk form. With this engineering framework, nanomaterials have the potential to behave and function differently or more superior than that of conventional macroscopic materials. Recent efforts to implement engineering of surfaces or chemical structure and composition particularly of low-dimensional nanomaterials have provided evidences that this approach can facilitate the design and assembly of novel architectures into useful devices and cater for a wide range of applications in energy, catalysis, sensing, to name a few. In this talk, our recent efforts in developing nanomaterials with tailored properties and functions will be presented. In particular, an emphasis will be placed on our recent developments on two dimensional nanosheets with unique solution behaviour for advanced applications in energy storage and conversion.
