讲座摘要:

The  increasing demands for clean energy have triggered tremendous research interests  on electrochemical energy conversion and storage systems with minimum  environmental impact. Electrolytic water splitting holds the promise for global  scale storage of renewable energy, e.g., solar and wind in the form of hydrogen  fuel, enabling the continuous usage of these diffusive and intermittent energy  sources when used together with fuel cells. Nevertheless, the widespread  application of water splitting technology has been severely constrained by the  use of precious metal catalysts, such as oxides of ruthenium and iridium for the  anodic oxygen evolution reaction (OER), and platinum for the cathodic hydrogen  evolution reaction (HER). This presentation concerns our recent progress in  developing non-precious metal-based, carbon-based and metal-organic framework  (MOF)-based water splitting catalysts, as well as our strategies for enhancing  the efficiency of these catalysts by nanostructuring to a level comparable to  that of precious metal catalysts.The commercialisation of some our catalysts in  water electrolysis industry also will be discussed.
