Professor Alison Downard is speaking as part of the year-long Marie Curie Lecture Series.

Take electrochemistry, materials chemistry and surface chemistry, and mix in some nanotechnology and biology and the possibilities are endless. In electrochemistry, electrical energy is used to force oxidation and reduction reactions to occur at electrodes. The materials and surfaces of electrodes are the starting point and with the techniques of nanotechnology, we can get right down to the surface to see what is happening and maybe even take control.

This lecture will showcase some of the ways we make electrodes, enzymes and bugs work together for us; how we can use carbon nanotubes to give us new electrical devices; and how electrochemistry may play a role in a future world of nanoscale devices.

Professor Downard is a Principal Investigator with the MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology. She is leader of the Molecular Materials theme at the MacDiarmid Institute and Head of Department of Chemistry at the University of Canterbury.

No ticket booking necessary for this talk.
