Plastics are ubiquitous materials in every sector of modern society due to their versatility, light-weight, diverse and tunable properties, and often low cost. In this talk, Yan Xia will present several unusual types of plastics developed in my lab at Stanford, including degradable polymers that could replace the environmentally-persistent plastics, molecular-sieving membranes for energy efficient chemical separations, and mechanically responsive polymers that sense, respond, and transform under stress.

Kent Kresa was on the GM Board for 10 years when he was tapped by the Obama Administration in January 2009 to become Chairman of that Board and lead the company thru bankruptcy proceedings sponsored by the Government. In this talk, he will describe the reasons it happened, who played major roles in the activity and outcome, and some of the lessons learned. The process took only 40 days even though it was the fourth largest emergence from bankruptcy ever accomplished in America.

The vast design space and long lifetime of batteries have limited the speed of innovations at the materials, cell, and systems level. In this talk, Will Chueh will share his efforts at Stanford to dramatically accelerate the pace of research and development for lithium-ion batteries by hybridizing physics-based and data-driven approaches.
