Dr. Tom Autrey, Staff Scientist at PNNL will present "Using calorimetry to understand heterogeneous and homogeneous reactions."
Abstract: Calorimetry is generally recognized as an experimental technique to obtain thermodynamic data for chemical reactions, however, time dependent measurements of the heat flow can provide additional insight into kinetics of chemical transformation. Our research has ranged from measuring the kinetics and thermodynamics of reactions of reactive intermediates on a microsecond time scale to reactions that occur over days. I look forward to sharing how we use time-resolved reaction calorimetry to gain insight into both heterogeneous and homogeneous catalytic transformations on compounds and materials that show promise for energy storage applications.
