6th ECS Yamagata University Student Chapter Symposium
The 6th ECS Yamagata University (YU) Student Chapter Symposium featured Dr. Philipp Stadler, Johannes Kepler University (JKU) Linz, Austria. His lecture, “Conductive Biopolymers as Sustainable Electrocatalysts,” covered the research background to the serious problems caused by global climate change and the scarcity of resources for developing sustainable technology. He presented recent progress on metal-free organic conductive polymer catalysts for hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and CO2 reduction reaction (CO2RR). A lively discussion followed as the talk was directly related to YU students’ research. (more…)
