Transition Metals Encapsulated in Single-walled Carbon Nanotubes as High Performance Catalysts for Hydrogen Evolution Reaction

Project Details


Hydrogen is a benign and eco-friendly future energy vector; whose only oxidation and combustion product is water. A most simple and environmentally friendly way to generate hydrogen is via electrolysis of water using renewable energy what primarily requires effective catalysts. While one of the most efficient catalysts for hydrogen evolution reaction are platinum-containing materials, these materials are rather scarce and expensive.

This project is aimed to develop new approaches to preparation of Pt-free catalysts for hydrogen evolution reaction. The catalysts are going to be fabricated by encapsulation of transition metals inside carbon nanotubes by means of cyclic voltammetry what should enable controllable filling.
