Two-step STWS is a process where solar heat is used to drive the endothermic water splitting process; a metal oxide serves as an O-carrier, where in the first step of the STWS process O 2 is released by the metal oxide at high temperatures and in the second step, the O atoms from H 2 O molecules are re-incorporated into the metal oxide releasing H 2.

Abstract Surfaces of metal oxides play a vital role in many technologically important applications. The surfaces of titanium dioxide, in particular, show quite promising properties that can be utilized in solid-state gas sensing and photocatalysis applications.Most of the ReRAM devices described to date have utilized thin film based metal oxide dielectrics as a resistive switching matrix. The goal of this dissertation project has been to investigate the resistive switching behavior of nanoparticulate metal oxides and to develop methods to utilize these materials in ReRAM device fabrication.Metal Oxide Nanostructures and Their Applications A thesis Submitted to the Department of Materials Science, School of Natural Sciences, University of Patras, in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy BY Ghulam Nabi Dar University of Patras Department of Materials Science University of Patras Greece.

This dissertation focuses on the development of metal oxide electrocatalysts with varying applications for alternative energy technologies. Interest in utilizing clean, renewable and sustainable sources of energy for powering the planet in the future has received much attention.Read More
Many transition metal- oxide films exhibit an electrochromic (EC) effect as they change their optical transmittance upon charge insertion or extraction. These materials may be integrated into multilayer devices, and the optical modulation is then produced by application of a small electrical voltage.Read More
The properties of metal oxide catalysts and hence, catalytic activity are highly dependent on the composition and structure of these oxides. This dissertation has 3 parts -- all directed towards understanding relationships between structure, composition and activity in metal oxide catalysts. The first part of this dissertation focuses on supported metal oxide catalysts of tungsten, vanadium.Read More

Graduate Thesis Or Dissertation. Metal oxide nanocrystals have attracted significant interests due to their unique chemical, physical, and electrical properties which depend on their size and structure. In this study, a continuous flow microreactor system was employed to synthesize metal oxide nanocrystals in aqueous solution.Read More
The ability of the interphase droplet reactor to synthesize other metal oxides was demonstrated by the synthesis of copper (II) oxide. Copper oxide sheet mesocrystals were formed in the absence of acetic acid. The presence of acetic acid in the droplet phase inhibited oriented attachment and produced copper oxide nanowires.Read More
Abstract. Carbon monoxide oxidation was performed over the three different oxidation states of copper -- metallic (Cu), copper (I) oxide (Cu 2 O), and copper (II) oxide (CuO) as a test case for developing a model metal oxide catalyst amenable to study by the methods of modern surface science and catalysis. Copper was deposited and oxidized on oxidized supports of aluminum, silicon, molybdenum.Read More
