The Handbook of Graphene Electrochemistry by Dale A. C. Brownson,Craig E. Banks

By Dale A. C. Brownson,Craig E. Banks

Graphene has grasped the eye of academia and world-wide due its certain constitution and stated valuable houses. This used to be mirrored through the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics being provided for groundbreaking experiments concerning the two-dimensional fabric graphene. One specific sector within which graphene has been greatly explored is electrochemistry the place it's most likely the world’s thinnest electrode fabric. Graphene has been extensively suggested to accomplish beneficially over latest electrode fabrics while used inside strength creation or garage units and whilst utilised to manufacture electrochemical sensors.

This publication charts the historical past of graphene, depicting the way it has made an effect within the box of electrochemistry and the way scientists try to solve its distinctive homes, which has, unusually ended in its fall from grace in a few components. A basic advent into Graphene Electrochemistry is given, wherein readers can gather the instruments required to successfully clarify and interpret the titanic array of graphene literature. The readers is supplied with the precise insights required with a view to layout and enforce diligent electrochemical experiments whilst making use of graphene as an electrode material.

Kritische Metalle in der Großen Transformation (German by Exner,Held,Kümmerer,Andreas Exner

By Exner,Held,Kümmerer,Andreas Exner

Das Buch weitet den Blick über die kurzfristige Verfügbarkeit von kritischen Metallen auf die grundlegende Frage: Kritisch für wen? Die Autoren nehmen alle Akteure in den Blick und behandeln geologische, chemische, technische, ökonomische und soziale Aspekte wie auch Fragen des Recyclings und verbinden diese. Auch auf Fragen nach dem guten Leben und des Bergbaus aus der Sicht von Ländern des Südens, Fragen der Ressourcenpolitik und -gerechtigkeit gehen sie ein. Ein weiteres Thema sind das UN-Tiefseebergbauregime und dessen Perspektiven, wie sich zukünftig unkonventionell Erz aus der Tiefsee gewinnen lässt. Kritische Metalle werden in den übergreifenden Zusammenhang der anstehenden Großen Transformation eingeordnet. Das Buch beleuchtet insbesondere die grundlegende Bedeutung der stofflichen Voraussetzungen der Energiewende und die energetischen Voraussetzungen der Stoffwende wie auch der Digitalisierung. Damit lässt sich zeigen, dass nicht nur seltene Erden kritisch sind, sondern ebenso Industriemetalle wie etwa Kupfer.Ressourcenpolitik zielt unter anderem auf Sicherung der Primärversorgung mit Technologiemetallen, auf Ressourceneffizienz, Recycling und Substitution kritischer Stoffe. Trotz erster Erfolge ist die Dynamik in Richtung einer zunehmenden Dissipation wertvoller kritischer Metalle ungebrochen. Nötig ist eine rasche Umsteuerung mit dem Ziel, kritische Metalle nicht länger im großen Stil zu verbrauchen, sondern sie klug zu gebrauchen.
