The table below shows a list of possible Wiki project topics.

Please remember that you are not limited to the topics listed here and you are allowed to suggest your own topics!

Please always reserve your topic both in the Wiki Work plan (MyCourses) and on the actual Wiki page (click the link, edit the page, and add your name on the page). 

TopicPossible additional information
Synthesis methods
Chemical vapor infiltration (CVI)Solid-state synthesis technique
Molecular beam epitaxySolid-state synthesis technique
Some other synthesis method?Do you know a solid-state synthesis method that is not yet listed on the Solid-state synthesis methods page? You can suggest the method as a topic.


Characterization methods
Vibrational circular dichroism (VCD)
Electrochemical impedance spectroscopyTopic for someone with strong interest in electrochemistry. There are previous pages from 2021 and 2022, but the Wiki would greatly benefit from a comprehensive version that introduces the technique and discusses at least one practical example from the literature. The topic could also be split in two topics: technique + applications.
Single crystal X-Ray Diffraction (2023)Topic for someone with strong interest in X-Ray diffraction. There is already a page on single-crystal XRD, but the Wiki would benefit from a more coherent page. A complete re-write would be the target here.
Powder X-Ray Diffraction (2023)Topic for someone with strong interest in X-Ray diffraction. There is already a page on powder XRD, but the Wiki would benefit from a more extensive page. A complete re-write would be the target here.
Some other characterization method?Do you know a characterization method that is not yet listed on Characterization methods page? You can suggest the method as a topic.


Battery chemistries for rechargeable batteriesPoints to discuss for all battery chemistries: material selection for (1) positive electrode, (2) electrolyte, and (3) negative electrode. Battery chemistries with solid-state or non-solid-state electrolytes can be discussed. The page must include crystal structure illustrations and descriptions.
LiCoO2Topic reserved
Li-NMC ("LiNiMnCoO2")Reserve your topic at Battery chemistries
LiFePO4Reserve your topic at Battery chemistries
LMO (Li-ion manganese oxide)Reserve your topic at Battery chemistries
Li-NCA ("LiNiCoAlO2")Reserve your topic at Battery chemistries
Lithium-siliconReserve your topic at Battery chemistries
Na-ion batteries (can be further subdivided). Reserve your topic at Battery chemistries
Mg-ion batteries(can be further subdivided). Reserve your topic at Battery chemistries
Al-ion batteries(can be further subdivided). Reserve your topic at Battery chemistries
Other battery chemistries? You can suggest your own topic!
