The limits of underpotential deposition in the nanoscale
(Elsevier Science Inc, 2012-07)
A thermodynamic model predicting the disappearance of the underpotential deposition phenomenon in the limit of small nanoparticles is proposed and developed for selected families of geometric bodies. The key parameters are ...
Electrochemically Generated Nanobubbles: Invariance of the Current with Respect to Electrode Size and Potential
(American Chemical Society, 2020-08)
Gas-producing electrochemical reactions are key to energy conversion and generation technologies. Bubble formation dramatically decreases gas-production rates on nanoelectrodes, by confining the reaction to the electrode ...
Microparticles with hetero-nanointerfaces: controlled assembly of cobalt hydroxide and nickel hydroxide nanoclusters towards improved electrochemical functions
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2019-09)
The ultimate control of the interfaces of nanocomposite materials is essential to tailor and improve their physical/chemical properties in applications such as catalysis and energy storage and production. Fabrication and ...
