CAES Codebreaker: CAES-based Molten Salt Chemistry and Corrosion Research

Molten salt research carried out at the Center for Advanced Energy Studies is the focus of the CAES Codebreaker webinar on June 2 at 3:30 p.m. University of Idaho's Haiyan Zhao will discuss her work exploring the use of molten salt in applications such as fuel cells, batteries, heat storage and transfer, pyroprocessing of spent nuclear fuels and reactors. Zhao has received funding from the Department of Energy and its Nuclear Energy University Program for her research, which has focused on metal oxide electrolytic reduction, molten salt electrochemistry and corrosion testing. In her presentation, Zhao also will discuss her career path and opportunities for collaboration with her and her students.
Zhao is associate professor in the Chemical and Biological Engineering Department and affiliated faculty in the Nuclear Engineering and Environmental Science program at University of Idaho (UI), Idaho Falls. She is also a CAES Fellow and program director for Chemical Engineering at UI, Idaho Falls.
Zhao earned her bachelor's degree in Chemistry from Tianjin University, her master's degree in Chemical Engineering from Tsinghua University and her PhD in Chemical Engineering from Virginia Tech. Before joining UI, she worked at Argonne National Laboratory.
Codebreaker provides a forum for scientists to address their work, communicate opportunities and challenges, and increase dialogue among CAES affiliates.
