Development of Amorphous Transition Metal Oxides for Oxygen Evolution Reaction

  • Synthesis of electrochemical catalysts based on amorphous transition metal oxides, especially, cobalt, nickel, and iron, for oxygen evolution reaction.
  • Optimization of catalytic performance with elemental composition, synthesis methods and nano-structure design.
  • Analysis of reaction pathway and mechanism of OER with in-situ characterizations (e.g. Raman and XAS)
