This talk will first provide an overview of different defects in 2-Dimensional materials including graphene and Chalcogenides. In particular, we will focus on: 1)defining the dimensionalities and atomic structures of defects; 2)pathways to generating structural defects during and after synthesis and, 3) the effects of having defects on the physico-chemical properties and applications. We will then discuss the synthesis of large-area, high-quality monolayers of nitrogen-,...

In this talk, I will present our recent theoretical and computational findings on water splitting including both the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER)1 and the oxygen evolution reaction (OER).2,3 We have computationally predicted new highly active transition-metal oxide OER catalysts and transition-metal carbide HER catalysts that have been experimentally synthesized, characterized and tested.1-3
