As a renewable and clean fuel, hydrogen is considered as a potential energy carrier for future energy infrastructure. The electrocatalytic splitting of water is an important process with high energy conversion efficiency for hydrogen production. It is a great of significance to search for the high-efficient and economic catalysts for water splitting.
My main work focuses on the design and synthesis of nanocompositions for applications in water splitting, especially in HER. The structure of nanohybrids will be investigated by a series of materials characterizations, such as SEM, TEM, XRD and XPS. The hydrogen production activity will be correlated with the electrochemical experiments for a verification.
