Hybrid Electrocatalysts For Alcohol Reforming H2-Electrolyzers

This project seeks to integrate thermal metal-ligand cooperative dehydrogenation catalysts into hybrid materials for the conversion of renewable alcohols into value-added products in low-voltage H2- electrolyzers. Electrifying thermal homogeneous catalysts within novel hybrid materials is thought to fill the gap between recent developments in highly selective homogeneous electrocatalysis and the demand of robust, high current density electrolyzers. By replacing the energy-demanding oxygen evolution reaction, energy efficiency will be increased through the lowering of the cell voltage, while at the same time, product value is increased through the co-formation of value-added oxygenated products, such as glycolic acid, ethyl acetate and others.
