Inorganic Cobalt metal in a new high-efficiency and cheapest catalyst for water electrolysis

13/02/2018

A research team led by Professor Sangaraju Shanmugam of Energy Science and Engineering at DGIST with the collaboration of the research group of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), USA, has found that a large amount of inorganic cobalt metal ions bridged by organic ligands in the Prussian blue analog were shown to be a suitable precursor for developing efficient and ultra-stable, metal-rich, nitrogen-doped graphitic nanocarbon-encapsulated core-shell electrocatalysts for the sluggish OER (anode) in water splitting.
