讲座摘要:

Low temperature fuel cells are electrochemical  devices that convert chemical energy directly to electricity. They have great  potential for both stationary and transportation applications and are expected  to help address the energy and environmental problems that have become prevalent  in our society. Despite their great promise, commercialization has been hindered  by lower than predicted efficiencies and high loading of Pt-based  electrocatalysts in the electrodes. For more than five decades, extensive work  has being focused on the development of novel electrocatalysts for fuel cell  reactions. In this talk, I will present recent progress in developing advanced  electrocatalysts mainly for oxygen reduction reaction in my group, with an  emphasis on core-shell and shape controlled nanocrystals. Fuel cell testing  results on these advanced catalysts will be shared. The mechanisms for activity  enhancement will also be discussed based on the results of density functional  theory calculations.
