Highly Efficient Photoelectrochemical H2O2 Production Reaction with Co3O4as Co-catalysts

The mixed-metal oxides are one of the most frequently used catalysts in chemical industry, because the superior catalytic reactivity can be achieved by taking advantage of the synergetic effects of their parent oxides. However, the interfacial electronic interactions between metal oxides remains unclear due to their structural complexity. This paper describes the modulation of catalytic […]

Angew Chem: Hydroxyl‐mediated Non‐oxidative Propane Dehydrogenation over VOx/Al2O3 Catalysts with Promoted Stability

Supported vanadium oxides are one of the most promising alternative catalysts for propane dehydrogenation (PDH) and massive efforts have been made to improve its catalytic performance. However, unlike Pt‐based catalysts, the nature of the active site and surface structure of supported vanadium catalysts under reductive reaction condition still remain elusive. We show that the surface […]
