ABSTRACT

Two-dimensional materials have attracted attention from both fundamental aspects and application. In this work, we will present some of our recent effort to using first-principles based computational tools to design two-dimensional materials for energy applications. We have explored new possible ionic two dimensional materials and discover some that have not been synthesized yet [1]. Furthermore, their potential applications to adsorption of Li (for battery and hydrogen storage [2]) and hydrogen evolution reactions [3] are also examined.
