The President’s Lecture:

Engineering Photoelectrode Materials for Solar Fuels

Dr. Salvador Eslava of the University of Bath



Dr. Eslava currently leads a group on novel synthesis approaches for (photo)electrochemical and (photo)catalytic materials, including transition metal oxides, halide perovskites, oxide perovskites, and graphene derivatives. He and his group carry out physicochemical and electrochemical characterisation of these materials to relate their properties to their application on energy conversion and storage and pollutants remediation, as well as on their scale up and development. His research is multidisciplinary, extending the limits and synergies between chemical engineering, chemistry, and materials science.


Date: Tuesday, 8th October 2019 at 6.00pm (following the AGM)
