Energy Materials, Enviromental Materials
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: As part of the September 2013 conference, volume one of the three-volume set contains 37 papers from seven symposia on energy and environmental materials and 43 papers from eight symposia on functional materials. The Chinese researchers investigate the latent heat of aluminum-silicon alloys, the properties of ZnO thin films grown by pulse laser deposition on glass substrates, the photocatalytic activity of Ce-doped hematite for hydrogen production, and the transformation of graphite to nanodiamonds. Other topics include the degradation of sodium dodecyl benzene sulfonate in laundry water, molybdenum doped vanadium dioxide thermochromic thin films for smart windows, a circular eco-industrial park for comprehensive utilization of coal gangue, and carbon fiber paper for proton exchange membrane fuel cells.
