Among the topics are the computational and experimental design of novel high-temperature alloys, effects of firing conditions on the coal ash fusibility test, fabricating thin and thick films of photocatalytic titania, a thermodynamic database for hydrogen storage materials, fine controlled metallo-dendrimers for advanced nano-catalysts, the status and challenges of molten carbonate fuel cells, applying carbon nanotubes in lithium-ion batteries, and ionic liquid binary mixtures for low-temperature applications.
The lab is now proceeding with a range of further tests including Ultimate Analysis, Trace Elements, Ash Analysis, Ash Fusibility, Hardgrove Grindability Index and Petrographic analysis.
