Dr Peter Albers (Evonik Technology & Infrastructure GmbH)
For an adequate characterization of industrial process catalysts, fuel cell catalysts and various other highly dispersed technical materials which show a high degree of structural complexity at several orders of magnitude the combination of quite different methods is essential. This includes standard routines of instrumental analysis, electron microscopy and surface spectroscopies as well as...
32. Investigating guest selectivity and dynamics in porous framework materials using in situ neutron scattering and computational approaches
Josie Auckett (The Bragg Institute, Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation)
Microporous solids capable of reversibly hosting specific guest molecules are being actively sought for a wide variety of applications in the energy sector, including CO$_2$ sequestration and conversion, gas separations, fuel storage, and catalysis. Classes of porous framework materials such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and covalent organic frameworks (COFs) are considered especially...
9. Proton dynamics of phosphoric acid in the catalytic layer of gas diffusion electrodes for HT-PEFC
Dr Marina Khaneft (Jülich Centre for Neutron Science, Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH)
Energy storage & transformation
High-temperature polymer electrolyte fuel cells (HT-PEFC) are promising electrochemical energy converters. Because of the high operation temperature of 160°C - 180°C the HT-PEFCs have a high CO tolerance.  Recent works on the development of HT- PEFC are focused mostly on the performance and technical optimization. However, the fundamental investigation of the proton conductivity will help...
