In China, environmentally friendly energy-conversion technologies, such as fuel cells and water-splitting systems, have attracted considerable attention. However, application of these electrochemical devices is hindered due to the high energy barrier of oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) and hydrogen evolution reaction (HER).  Single-atom catalysts (SACs) are the most promising candidates for ORR and HER catalysis. However, […]

Biofuels are a very important part of America’s economic and energy future. On the geopolitical side, from Ukraine to the Middle East we see events that threaten energy stability. We see domestic manufacturing fighting its way back from Great Recession, and more evidence appears all the time that we need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions […]
