 Managing CO2 from Capture and Concentration to Conversion
A Virtual Seminar Presented by:
Professor Jenny Y. Yang
Chancellor’s Professor, Department of
Chemistry, University of California Irvine
6:30 – 7:30 p.m. • Thursday, March 17
Via Zoom


Abstract: Addressing the rising levels of anthropogenic CO2 in our atmosphere is a major scientific challenge. The Yang group has focused on capture, concentration and conversion of CO2 using electrochemical techniques. The seminar will discuss thermodynamic considerations for electrochemical CO2 capture using quinone redox carriers, and the conversion of concentrated CO2 to liquid fuels using transition metal electrocatalysts.

Speaker Bio:  Jenny Y. Yang is a valley girl (born and raised in San Fernando Valley). She received her BS at UC Berkeley (research with Professor Jeffrey R. Long) and completed her doctoral studies at MIT under the guidance of Professor Daniel G. Nocera. After her postdoctoral position with Dr. Daniel L. Dubois at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, she was hired as a research scientist in the Center for Molecular Electrocatalysis. After a subsequent position as a scientist at the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis, she started her current position as a faculty member at the University of California, Irvine.
