Book Description :

In this dissertation, a materials processing method to prepare high surface area solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) scaffolds at traditional sintering temperatures (1000°C–1400°C) was developed. We named this method "in situ carbon templating" and have used it to improve the performance of SOFC electrodes. There are two key differences between the in situ carbon templating and the traditional SOFC scaffold fabrication methods. First, the traditional method uses mixtures of metal oxides and carbon pore formers while in situ carbon templating uses hybrid materials. Second, in the traditional method, green scaffolds are sintered directly in air while, in the in situ carbon templating method, sintering is undertaken under inert atmospheres followed by calcination in air at low temperatures (~700°C). In the traditional method, the carbon pore formers are oxidized away at ~900°C which leaves the metal oxide particles with nothing to keep them apart. In the in situ carbon templating method, however, the organic component of the hybrid material is pyrolyzed during sintering under inert atmospheres which leaves behind an amorphous carbon template. This carbon template remains throughout the entire sintering period which keeps the metal oxide particles apart. This carbon template is removed by a subsequent calcination in air which takes a place at a temperature too low to cause significant material coarsening. Many high surface area SOFC materials were prepared including yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ, Zr[subscript 0.92]Y[subscript 0.16]O[subscript 2.08]), gadolinia doped ceria (GDC, Gd[subscript 1-x]Ce[subscript x]O2), samaria doped ceria (SDC, Sm[subscript 1-x]Ce[subscript x]O2), lanthanum strontium cobalt ferrite (LSCF, La[subscript 1-x]Sr[subscript x]Co[subscript 1-y]Fe[subscript y]O3), and strontium titanate (STO, SrTiO3). In all cases, the surface area of the materials prepared via in situ carbon templating were at least 40 times higher than those prepared via traditional methods. The impact of incorporating high surface area materials into SOFC electrodes through in situ carbon templating was also assessed. Thus far, incorporating high surface area YSZ into SOFC cathodes reduced the non-ohmic resistance by ~40% at 550°C. In the future, more experiments will be conducted to assess whether further electrode performance improvements could be achieved with various SOFC electrodes.

Book Description :

This book offers a comprehensive overview of ZnO-nano carbon core shell hybrid issues. There is significant interest in metal oxide/nanocarbon hybrid functional materials in the field of energy conversion and storage as electrode materials for supercapacitors, Li ion secondary battery, electrocatalysts for water splitting, and optoelectronic devices such as light emitting diodes and solar photovoltaic cells. Despite efforts to manipulate more uniform metal oxide-nanocarbon nanocomposite structures, they have shown poor performance because they are randomly scattered and non-uniformly attached to the nanocarbon surface. For higher and more effective performance of the hybrid structure, 3D conformal coating on metal oxides are highly desirable. In the first part of the book, the physical and chemical properties of ZnO and nanocarbons and the state-of-the-art in related research are briefly summarized. In the next part, the 3D conformal coating synthetic processes of ZnO templated nanocarbon hybrid materials such as ZnO-graphene,-C60, single-walled (SWCNT) are introduced with the aid of schematic illustrations. Analysis of their chemical bonding and structure are also presented. In the final section, several applications are presented: UV photovoltaic cells and photoelectrochemical anodes for water splitting using ZnO-C60 and ZnO-graphene, white-light-emitting diodes based on ZnO-graphene quantum dots(GQDs), inverted solar cells using ligand-modified ZnO-graphene QDs, and P(VDF-TrFE) copolymer with mixed with nano-ring SWCNT. The book describes how strong anchoring bonds between a ZnO core and carbon nanomaterial shell will ultimately prevail over the main drawbacks of ZnO with high charge recombination and poor electrochemical stability in liquid solutions. Due to the moderate energy states and excellent electric properties of the nanocarbons, ultrafast charge carrier transport from the ZnO core to the nanocarbon shell is guaranteed with the use of the photoluminescence (PL) lifetime measurement. Given the growing interest and significance of future research in optoelectronic and electrochemical devices applications, the contents are very timely. This book is targeted towards researchers looking for highly efficient metal oxide-nanocarbon hybrid functional materials in the fields of nano-optoelectronics, photoelectrochemistry, energy storage and conversion.
