Chemical challenges facing scalable hydrogen production with alkaline membrane electrolyzers

  • Date: Jun 17, 2022
  • Time: 15:00
  • Speaker: Prof. Dr. Shannon Boettcher
  • Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Oregon
  • Location: Building M, Richard-Willstätter-Haus, Faradayweg 10, 14195 Berlin
  • Room: Seminar Room
  • Host: Interface Science
  • Contact: roldan@fhi-berlin.mpg.de
Commercialized membrane electrolyzers use acidic proton exchange membranes (PEMs). These systems offer high performance but require the use of expensive precious-metal catalysts such as IrO2 and Pt that are nominally stable under the locally acidic conditions of the ionomer. [more]

Electrochemistry 2022 - At the Interface between Chemistry and Physics

  • Start: Sep 27, 2022
