VERMILLION, S.D. -- Ranjit Koodali, Ph.D., associate professor of chemistry at the University of South Dakota, co-organized a symposium on “Emerging Energy and Fuel Technologies: Solar Hydrogen Production” at the fall national meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) at Denver, Colo., recently. Koodali was tasked by the Division of Fuel Chemistry to co-organize the symposium along with Ravi Subramanian, Ph.D., assistant professor of chemical engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno.
According to Koodali, the 242nd ACS meeting, “Chemistry of Air, Space and Water,” related to hydrogen production from photosplitting of water as well as provided a venue for the dissemination of cutting edge research in new and emerging technologies in solar energy conversion for hydrogen production.
The symposium, which was spread across three different sessions from Aug. 28 through Sept. 1, included 24 presentations from prominent research scientists in the academia and national laboratories who presented their latest research.
