Dr. Wenzhen Li, Iowa State University Richard Seagrave Associate Professor, was published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS). The research was conducted in collaboration with postdoctoral associate Dr. Yang Qiu, Ames Laboratory research scientist Lin Zhou, postdoctoral research associate Tao Ma, and others.
The publication was titled: “BCC-Phased PdCu Alloy as a Highly Active Electrocatalyst for Hydrogen Oxidation in Alkaline Electrolytes.” The research highlighted the use of fuel cell systems. It not only opens a new route to develop more efficient electrocatalysts for hydrogen oxidation reaction at the anodes of alkaline membrane-based fuel cells and electrolyzers; but also demonstrates the possibility of integrating two descriptors for better screening efficient electrocatalysts for fuel cells.
