Friday Sept. 2nd

Dr. Tibor Szilvasi, University of Wisconsin - Madison, will be here to present "Photocatalysis with NaCl: Myth or reality?" Byker Auditorium at 3:10 pm.  Dr. Szilvasi is the guest of Professor Robert Szilagyi.

Abstract: Recently Tong et al have suggested based on their experiments that NaCl can play crucial role in atmospheric chemistry by photocatalyzing several reaction, such as degradation of HgCl2 and HgBr2, with the help of sunlight. In my talk I will show how NaCl, a chemically inert wide gap insulator material, can photocatalyze chemical transformations which can have significant importance in the design of future photocatalytic reactions.
