Title: Operando Methods for The Study of Energy Materials  

Abstract: This presentation will deal with the development of operando methods for the study and characterization of fuel cell and battery materials. The presentation will begin with a brief overview of the methods employed. Particular emphasis will be placed on the use of X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray absorp6on spectroscopy (XAS) X-ray microscopy and tomography and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) under active potential control. The utility of these methods will be illustrated by selected examples including electrocatalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction and spectroscopic studies of Li/S batteries and Li metal deposition and dendritic growth. The use of operando TEM will be illustrated by studies of fuel cell catalyst degradation and coalescence and lithiation/de-lithiation dynamics of LiFePO4 via energy-filtered TEM. The presentation will conclude with an assessment of future directions.

Title: Structure Design and Control-Synthesis of Electrocatalysts for Fuel Cell Applications

Abstract: Electrocatalyst is the key in developing electrochemical energy conversion and storage, and in green chemistry of electrosynthesis using electrons as reagents. The activity, selectivity and stability of electrocatalysts depend strongly on both their bulk and surface structures. Therefore, the rational design and control-synthesis of electrocatalysts are the central subjects and are mainly based on a well understanding in structure-catalytic functionality, which was achieved in the past through employing metal single crystal planes as model catalysts. Since practical electrocatalysts often consist of nanosize particles substrated on conductive support materials, design and control-synthesis of nanosize catalysts present effective strategy to overcome the gap between single crystal model catalysts and practical catalysts. This communication describes results focusing on structure design and control-synthesis of both anode and cathode catalysts towards fuel cell applications.
(1) Tuning the surface atomic arrangement of well-defined metal nanocatalysts. Well-defined Pt, Pd, Rh and Cu nanocrystals enclosed by high-index facets have been successfully obtained by developing electrochemically shape-controlled synthesis, such as tetrahexahedral nanocrystals (THH NCs) enclosed with {hk0} high-index facets, trapezohedral nanocrystals (TPH NCs) with {hkk} high-index facets, triambic icosahedral nanocrystals (TIH NCs) with {hhl} high-index facets and hexoctahedral Pt NCs (HOH NCs) with {hkl} facets. As the high-index facets contain a high density of active centers, these NCs of high surface energy exhibit much higher electrocatalytic activity than commercial catalysts for small organic fuel oxidation reactions.
(2) Tuning the electronic structure of Pt- and Pd-based nanocatalysts. The electronic structure of NCs catalysts has been tuned either by surface decoration using foreign adatoms, or through alloying Pt and Pd with other metals. Different adatoms such as Bi, Ru and Au were used to decorate the THH Pt NCs, and both THH and TPH Pt-based alloy nanocatalysts were prepared by electrochemically shape-controlled method. The THH and TPH alloy NCs preserve the high-index facets while hold a synergy of electronic effect that enhances further the electrocatalytic activity.
(3) Synthesis of non-precious metal electrocatalysts with high ORR activity. Fe/N/C is a promising electrocatalyst for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). By well-screening the precursors, optimizing the synthetic procedures and surface decoration, the resulted Fe/N/C exhibits high activity and stability in both acid and alkaline conditions. The results demonstrated that the Fe/N/C-SCN catalysts in a proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) can output a maximum power density
of 1.03 W cm2, and by using 2-aminothiazole as precursor the synthesized S-doped Fe/N/C catalyst with graphene nanosheets can yield a peak power density of 164 mW cm2 in an anion exchange membrane fuel cell (AEMFC).
