Functions in cooperation for enhanced oxygen reduction reaction: the independent roles of oxygen and nitrogen sites in metal-free nanocarbon and their functional synergy
7 February 2017

Our recently published article in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A which revealed on how the heteroatom-doped nanocarbons behave in the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) has been selected as Hot Article for 2017 web collection for the journal.

Developing a chloramine decay index to understand nitrification: A case study of two chloraminated drinking water distribution systems
19 December 2016

The management of chloramine decay and the prevention of nitrification are some of the critical issues faced by water utilities that use chloramine as a disinfectant.
