Biocompatible Redox Supercapacitors

26th January 2017, 13:00 to 14:00, E245, School of Engineering & Computing Sciences, Dr Ritu Kataky

Pseudocapacitors for implantable and small digital devices require specifications which are different from devices employed in energy storage. For biomedical applications, pseudocapacitors show considerable promise in producing and sensing fast changes in current without degradation.

In this talk, the fundamentals of redox supercapacitors and the current state of art in field biocompatible redox supercapacitors will be presented.

Dr Ritu Katakyis a Reader in electrochemistry in the Department of Chemistry, Durham University. Her contributions have been in applications and characterization of materials using electrochemistry impedance spectroscopy and surface characterization technique. She has >100 international journal publications (with over 1900 citations), 3 patents, an h-index of 29 and regularly lectures at national and international meetings. Ritu has supervised 25 PhD students, several post-doctoral fellows and international visitors. She has served as chairperson of the Electroanalytical Group (Royal Society of Chemistry; RSC), an Analytical Division Council member and trustee of the Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund. Recently she has been nominated as Vice Chair of Division 1 of the International Society for Electrochemistry.
