The Effect of Carbon Supports on the Electrochemical CO2 Reduction Reaction of Catalysts

Project Details


In this project, the preparation and application of highly effective carbon-supported nanocatalysts toward electrochemical CO2 reduction (CO2RR) reactions will be investigated. The carbon-based nanocatalysts will be prepared and gas chromatography will be constructed to analyze the gaseous product such as CO during CO2RR. The faradaic efficiency of electrode materials during CO2RR is highly related to their structures (alloy or core/shell), morphology (size, aspect ratio, and thickness of the shell), supports (carbon black and carbon nanotubes) and electrolytes. We will combine the synthesis of materials to elucidate the electronic states, atomic arrangements, and morphological and structural evolution during heating under specific atmospheres. The combination of experimental, spectroscopic and microscopic results will open new insights into the design of highly effective and stable.
