Solveig Kjeldgaard

During her PhD studies, Solveig Kjeldgaard researched electrode materials for stationary energy storage, with focus on Prussian Blue Analogues (PBA). Solveig Kjeldgaard investigated how different synthesis routes affect the structure of PBA, and the research findings contribute to the understanding of the relationship between synthesis method, structure and properties. Furthermore, Solveig Kjeldgaard has investigated how electrolyte composition, pH and PBA synthesis affects the performance of aqueous PBA/zinc cells.

The PhD study was completed at Department of Engineering, Faculty of Technical Sciences and Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Natural Sciences, Aarhus Universitet.

This summary was prepared by the PhD student.

Time: Friday 27 November 2020 at 13.00.
Place: Building 1514, room 213, Lecture Theatre I, Department of Chemistry, Aarhus University, Langelandsgade 140, 8000 Aarhus C.
