How To Teach An Old Dog New Tricks: Advancing Perovskite Via Anion Doping

Hydrogen can be easily produced through water electrolysis (2H2O → 2H2 + O2), a process that makes use of electricity to break the bonds between constituent elements (i.e., hydrogen and oxygen) of water molecules and releases them in a gaseous form. Hydrogen gas is high in energy, yet an engine that burns pure hydrogen produces almost zero pollution, unlike those powered by burning fossil fuels. Therefore, water electrolysis has long been an important research area for conversions of intermittent energy sources, such as sunlight...

Realization Of Low-Cost Energy Storage And Conversion Technology: A Promising Air Electrode For Zn Air Battery

As a promising post-lithium-ion battery technology, rechargeable Zn air batteries have attracted intense attention due to their high theoretical energy and power density. However, the slow kinetics of the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) and oxygen evolution reaction (OER) in the air electrode has been the technical challenge for the practical application of Zn air battery. As such, the development of bifunctional electrocatalysts that can efficiently catalyze both ORR and OER is of prime importance. The state-of-art bifunctional electrocatalysts for...
