Description

Nanomaterials for Electrocatalysis provides an overview of the different types of nanomaterials, design principles and synthesis protocols used for electrocatalytic reactions. The book is divided into four parts that thoroughly describe basic principles and fundamental of electrocatalysis, different types of nanomaterials used, and their electrocatalytic applications, limitations and future perspectives. As electrochemical systems containing nanomaterials, with relevance to experimental situation, yield better results, this book highlights new information and findings.

Key Features

  • Provides an overview of nanomaterials applications for electrocatalytic processes, such as oxygen reduction reaction (ORR), oxygen evolution reaction (OER), hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and CO2 reduction reaction (CO2RR)
  • Provides information on the design and development of various nanomaterials appropriate for electrocatalytic applications
  • Assesses the challenges of manufacturing nanomaterials at an industrial scale for electronic applications
