EN01 Sustainable Catalysis—Novel Materials for Energy Conversion Beyond Photocatalysis
The symposium will present the best-in-class electrocatalytic materials that rely on noble metals such as Ruthenium, Iridium, Platinum and those that are similar. 3D transition metals systems and organic, metal-organic and biologic electrocatalysts are attractive contenders; however, they come at cost of stability and/or performance. This symposium focuses material research concentrated on the development of sustainable electrocatalysts for energy conversion. The intent of the symposium is to cover aspects from fundamental and mechanistic operando/DFT studies to complete-cycle applications in order to bridge the knowledge among the different disciplines and scientific fields. The target is to accelerate and promote the maturity of sustainable electrocatalytic materials, in particular for the hydrogen evolution reaction, oxygen evolution reaction, oxygen reduction reaction and the carbon dioxide reduction reaction. In addition, we promote new insights for fuel cell applications, as well as alternative non-carbon based fuels, such as the electrocatalytic nitrogen reduction and similar non-carbon based fuels. We invite scientists to present their recent insights and materials developments that potentially can achieve equal state-of-the-art performances. The symposium includes explicitly discrete complete redox cycle applications, such as electrolyzers and fuel cells.
