    Representations of braid groups have appeared in many different areas such as topology, statistical mechanics, conformal field theory, braided tensor categories and others. In order to compare these, intrinsic characterizations of such representations are desirable. These have been known for some time for representations in connection with vector representations of classical Lie types, in terms of Hecke algebras and so-called BMW algebras. We review these and show how these results can be extended to include more cases related to exceptional Lie types. In particular, we obtain new classes of braid representations where the images of the generators satisfy a cubic equation. Time permitting, we discuss applications of these results such as Schur-Weyl type duality theorems and classification of braided tensor categories.

    Currently, more than 40 gigatonnes of CO2 are released annually into the atmosphere as a result of fossil fuel combustion, causing ocean acidification and climate unpredictability. Anthropogenic CO2 emission is seemingly hard to diminish in the near future and, therefore, CO2 -capture and sequestration or CO2 -functionalization can be viable solutions to address this issue. To use CO2 as a chemical feedstock, namely as a C1 building block, it is essential to equip the process with a nucleophilic catalyst or a highly active reagent, as exemplified by Grignard carboxylation reactions and some recent progress in metal-catalyzed reactions. In this seminar, I will display how we can utilize CO2 not only as a chemical feedstock and a catalyst but also as a stimulus for a desalination process. The obtained knowledge in CO2 activation and desalination will be beneficial in supramolecular chemistry, biology, CO2functionalization catalysis and CO2 sequestration processes.
