Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids scientists have been looking into the rational design of new types of OER (Oxygen Evolution Reaction) electrocatalysts and addressing fundamental questions about the key reactions in energy conversion. Their paper, Al2Pt for Oxygen Evolution in Water Splitting: a Strategy for Creating Multi‚Äźfunctionality in Electrocatalysis, has been published […]

Many research teams have been searching for more efficient catalysts to speed the splitting of water into hydrogen and oxygen. The reaction is key to the production of hydrogen as a fuel for use in cars; to generate electricity in fuel cells, the operation of some rechargeable batteries, including zinc-air batteries; and for the industrial […]
