Xintong’s paper on Cu0-Cu+ for CO2 Electroreduction is accepted for publication in Angew Chem!

Cu‐based electrocatalysts can effectively facilitate carbon dioxide electrochemical reduction (CO2ER) to produce multi‐carbon products. However, the roles of Cu0 and Cu+ and the mechanistic understanding remain elusive. This paper describes the controllable construction of Cu0-Cu+ sites derived from the well‐dispersed cupric oxide supported on copper phyllosilicate lamella to enhance CO2ER performance. Specifically, 20% Cu/CuSiO3 shows […]

Our paper on Pt-Sn Catalysts for Propane Dehydrogenation has been selected as a Cover Story for ACS Catalysis!

Bimetallic nanoparticle catalysts attract extensive attention for relevant catalysis processes due to their flexible structures, while the structure evolution under specific conditions is ambiguous. This paper describes the structure evolution of Pt-Sn bimetallic nanoparticles for catalytic dehydrogenation, especially Sn segregation for surface recovery of a Pt-Sn alloy. An acid etching-reduction process was adopted to investigate […]
