Episode 4: Mohammad Torkamanzadeh on Electrochemical Water Desalination and Extraction of Valuable Ions

In this episode of the Material Minds podcast, host Shrikrishnan Sankaran talks with Mohammad Torkamanzadeh, a recently graduated postdoctoral researcher in the Energy and Energy Materials Research Department under Professor Volker Presser at INM. Mohammad explains his work on electrochemical water desalination, which involves not only removing salt but also extracting specific ions such as valuable lithium needed for batteries from water. Using special electrodes and electrochemical cells, his research opens new pathways to harnessing hidden treasures in water and contributes to a better world. Look forward to a fascinating discussion about the groundbreaking possibilities of modern water treatment.
