"Electrocatalysis at Electrode/Electrolyte Interface Based on Nanotechnology"

Presented by Shaojun Dong, Changahun Inst of Applied Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China

Electrocatalysis at electrode/electrolyte interface is an important and long term topic from fundamental and practical point of view. Considerable current interest in electrocatalysis based on self-assembly and nanotechnology is ongoing challenge. The deliberate tailoring of nanostructured metallic catalysts at the monolayer-level could lead to new electronic and catalytic properties since surface-catalyzed reactions are extremely sensitive to the atomic- level details of the catalytic surface.

In this report, we present a novel electrochemical strategy to nanoparticle-based catalyst design using the underpotential deposition (UPD), self-assembly and UPD with redox replacement technique from our laboratory.
