Electrocatalysis and it relationship with electrochemical devices capables for energy conversion and in gas and vapor sensors

Abstract

In this proposal is intended supply solution to the problems associated to the efficiency of reactions that occurs in direct acohol fuel cells, in particular in the electro-oxidation of ethanol and glycerol. The general aim of this proposal foresees the inedited preparation of nanoparticles for ethanol and glycerol electro-oxidation, specially as multi-metallic nanoparticles, forming surface alloys or core-shell nanostructures for application as electro-catalysts in direct alcohol fuel cells. Additionally, monocrystalline stepped surfaces will be also employed with the intention to design stepped surface catalytic nanoparticles. (AU)
