First-principles thermochemical properties of hexagonal and cubic phase BaMnO3

Authors: Ghose, KK; Bayon, A; Page, AJ

Mater. Today Commun.. vol: 31. page: .
Date: JUN. 2022.
Doi: 10.1016/j.mtcomm.2022.103453.

BaMnO3 perovskite oxide is an interesting material for many high-temperature technological applications due to its facile reduction capacity at reasonably low temperature. The thermochemical properties of BaMnO3 largely determine this reduction behaviour at high temperature. However, the temperature-dependent thermochemical properties of [read more]

Layer Shape LiFePO4 Obtained by Powder Extrusion Molding as Solid Boosters for Ferro/Ferricyanide Catholyte in Semisolid Redox Flow Battery: Effect of Porosity and Shape

There is an increasing need for photocatalytic materials capable to remove pollutants and to deactivate microorganisms for a wide range of applications. Here we report the preparation of fly ash-based zeolite material in which ZnO was [read more]

Transformation of CoFe2O4 spinel structure into active and robust CoFe alloy/N-doped carbon electrocatalyst for oxygen evolution reaction

Authors: Gebreslase, GA; Martinez-Huerta, MV; Sebastian, D; Lazaro, MJ

J. Colloid Interface Sci.. vol: 625. page: 0021-9797.
Date: NOV. 2022.
Doi: 10.1016/j.jcis.2022.06.005.

Electrochemical water splitting is an environmentally benign technology employed for H-2 production; however, it is critically hampered by the sluggish kinetics of the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) at the positive electrode. In this work, nitrogen-doped carbon-coated CoFe electrocatalysts [read more]
