About this book

Topics in Number 50 include:

• Investigation of alloy cathode Electrocatalysts

• A model Hamiltonian that incorporates the solvent effect to gas-phase density functional theory (DFT) calculations

• DFT-based theoretical analysis of ORR mechanisms

• Structure of the polymer electrolyte membranes (PEM)

• ORR investigated through a DFT-Green function analysis of small clusters

• Electrocatalytic oxidation and hydrogenation of chemisorbed aromatic compounds on palladium

Electrodes

• New models that connect the continuum descriptions with atomistic Monte Carlo simulations

• ORR reaction in acid revisited through DFT studies that address the complexity of Pt-based alloys in electrocatalytic processes

• Use of surface science methods and electrochemical techniques to elucidate reaction mechanisms in electrocatalytic processes

• In-situ synchrotron spectroscopy to analyze electrocatalysts dispersed on nanomaterials

 

From reviews of previous volumes:

 

“Continues the valuable service that has been rendered by the Modern Aspects series.” —Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry

 

“Extremely well-referenced and very readable.... Maintains the overall high standards of the series.” —Journal of the American Chemical Society
