In this paper, Sun et al reported their work on a rechargeable Al-Li alloy/SPAN battery with a high voltage of 1.5 V constructed using an Al-Li alloy anode, a polymeric sulfur cathode, and a lithium ion electrolyte.
The study recently published in Chem. Eng. Science, is aiming to explore the effect of plasmonic enhancement to the role of Ni-Au bimetallic catalysts for CO2 reduction and methanation. Lovell, et.
This paper reports the investigation on the roles of light and catalyst support of nickel supported on varied ratios of mixed ceria and titania, Ni/CexTiyO2 catalyst in the photothermal methanation of CO2. The research considers in-depth the Ni/CexTiyO2 system for the purpose of understanding... read more
The Chemical Society of Japan (CSJ) which started 130 years ago and has a membership exceeding 34,000, is one of the most affluent academic societies in Japan, covering most areas of pure and applied chemistry.
Studies has shown that photogenerated electrons and holes can be directed toward specific crystal facets of a semiconductor particle, which is believed to arise from differences in their surface electronic structures, suggesting that different facets can act as either photo-reduction or photo-... read more
This work takes on our earlier research on UV light pre-treatment and motivated by the potential benefits associated with utilizing visible light in our system, by exploitation of the Localised Surface Plasmon Resonance effect arising from Au to generate free electrons, which are... read more
In this article featured as Frontispiece in Advanced Energy Materials, we undertake for the first time a mechanistic evaluation of the light-induced ion intercalation process that occurs in... read more
Carbon dioxide emission is driven by our incessant craving for a better quality of life and the consequent urbanisation and economic growth, which lead to ever growing energy demand. Hansen et al.
After almost 40 years of research and study on photocatalysis, its practical application is still limited, mainly due to its slow kinetics and the challenges associated with reactor design.
