Electrical energy input efficiency limitations in CO2-to-CO electrolysis and attempts for improvement

  •  13 November 2023

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

The electrical input energy efficiency in CO2 electrolysis is limited by the inherent CO2 transport under alkaline operating conditions. Different production routes towards CO are examined and experimentally validated. CO2 electrolysis was conducted under acidic electrolyte conditions (pH = 0–6). FEHCOOH was stable down to pH ≈ 1. Even under very acidic bulk electrolytes, no change in the reduction mechanism could be forced.

Investigation of physicochemical drivers directing ionic liquid assembly on polymeric nanoparticles

  •  4 October 2023

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Four ionic liquid(IL, gold)-modified polymer platforms were disrupted via electrostatics and hydrogen bonding using sodium-sulfate salt & hydrochloric acid. Salt fluidizes IL-LDBC NPs (middle), releasing cation (+,red). Acid causes most anion (-,red)/total IL loss, exposing dendritic-PAMAM (black). On DPP NPs (bottom), sodium deposits (+,green) with PEG expansion (blue), equally releasing cation/anion. Acid releases remaining IL and degrades PLGA (pink).

Zooming‐in – Visualization of active site heterogeneity in high entropy alloy electrocatalysts using scanning electrochemical cell microscopy

  •  6 August 2021

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

High entropy alloy complex solid solutions have an exceptionally high number of different multi-element active sites. We investigate the activity of differently sized surface areas to experimentally confirm this concept and to reveal the critical number of sites, which distinguishes between statistically averaged catalytic response and activity differences based on covering only fractions of all possible active sites.

Redox mediator induced electrochemical reactions at the electrode‐electrolyte interface: Making sodium‐ion supercapacitors a competitive technology

  •  4 May 2021

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Na-ion supercapacitors can become a competitive technology by using a redox additive modified electrolyte in combination with a high performance electrode material such as NaMnPO4. Nearly 50% enhancement in the specific capacitance is observed when the pure electrolyte is modified with as low as 6 mM concentration of the redox additives such as: KFCN or KI.
