Highly Selective Conversion of CO2 to CO Achieved by a Three-Dimensional Porous Silver Electrocatalyst
14 February 2017

One of the common problem in using electrocatalyst in the CO2 reduction process is a trade-off between product selectivity and product generation rate, where Hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and CO2RRR compete with each other.

Monolithic Integration of Anodic Molybdenum Oxide Pseudocapacitive Electrodes on Screen-Printed Silicon Solar Cells for Hybrid Energy Harvesting-Storage Systems
14 February 2017

In this recently published communication, our researchers report a novel hybrid energy harvesting-storage architecture consisting of anodic amorphous MoOx (a-MoOx) pseudocapacitive electrode monolithically integrated on the rear Al electrode of an industrial screen-printed Si soalr cell.  The c-... read more

Chloramine demand estimation using surrogate chemical and microbiological parameters
14 February 2017

In collaboration with SA Water, Water Corporation (Western Australia) and Central Highlands Water, the researcher from PARTCAT group develop a chloroamine demand model which could be useful for both drinking water quality management and treatment plant operational management.

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.

Epitaxial Growth of Au–Pt–Ni Nanorods for Direct High Selectivity H2O2 Production
16 December 2016

Manipulating ceria-titania binary oxide features and their impact as nickel catalyst supports for low temperature steam reforming of methane
30 November 2016

This paper examined the impact of the reducible mixed oxides of titanium with cerium properties as a support for nickel-catalysed low temperature steam reforming of methane.

Investigating the effect of UV light pre-treatment on the oxygen activation capacity of Au/TiO2
23 November 2016

Our work on 'The effect of UV light pre-treatment on the oxygen activation capacity of Au/TiO2" was selected to be featured as front cover in the latest issue of Catalysis Science & Technology journal (Impact Factor: 5.287).
