  • Copper Silver Thin Films with Metastable Miscibility for Oxygen Reduction Electrocatalysis in Alkaline Electrolytes 

    Garcia Melchor, Max (2018)
    Increasing the activity of Ag-based catalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) is important for improving the performance and economic outlook of alkaline-based fuel cell and metal–air battery technologies. In this ...
  • Homogeneously Dispersed Multimetal Oxygen-Evolving Catalysts 

    Zhang, Bo; Zheng, Xueli; Voznyy, Oleksandr; Comin, Riccardo; Bajdich, Michal; Garcia-Melchor, Max; Han, Lili; Xu, Jixian; Liu, Min; Zheng, Lirong; García de Arquer, F. Pelayo; Dinh, Cao T.; Fan, Fengjia; Yuan, Mingjian; Yassitepe, Emre; Chen, Ning; Regier, Tom; Liu, Pengfei; De Luna, Phil; Janmohamed, Alyf; Xin, Huolin L.; Yang, Huagui; Vojvodic, Aleksandra; Sargent, Edward H. (2016)
    Earth-abundant first-row (3d) transition-metal-based catalysts have been developed for the oxygen-evolution reaction (OER); however, they operate at overpotentials significantly above thermodynamic requirements. Density ...
  • Dramatic Mechanistic Switch in Sn/AuI Group Exchanges: Transmetalation vs. Oxidative Addition 

    Carrasco, Desiré; Garcia-Melchor, Max; Casares, Juan A.; Espinet, Pablo (2016)
    The mechanism of Ph/X exchange in reactions involving SnPh(n)Bu3 and [AuXL] complexes switches dramatically from the usual concerted mechanism involving Ar/X mixed bridges when X = Cl, to an unexpected oxidative ...
  • Gold-Supported Cerium-Doped NiOx Catalysts for Water Oxidation 

    Desmond Ng, Jia Wei; Garcia-Melchor, Max; Bajdich, Michal; Chakthranont, Pongkarn; Kirk, Charlotte; Vojvodic, Aleksandra; Jaramillo, Thomas F. (2016)
    The development of high-performance catalysts for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) is paramount for cost-effective conversion of renewable electricity to fuels and chemicals. Here we report the significant enhancement ...
  • Equilibrium oxygen storage capacity of ultrathin CeO2 depends non-monotonically on large biaxial strain 

    Gopal, Chirranjeevi B.; Garcia-Melchor, Max; Lee, Sang C.; Shi, Yezhou; Andrey, Shavorskiy; Monti, Matteo; Guan, Zixuan; Sinclair, Robert; Bluhm, Hendrik; Vojvodic, Aleksandra; Chueh, William C. (2017)
    Elastic strain is being increasingly employed to enhance the catalytic properties of mixed ion–electron conducting oxides. However, its effect on oxygen storage capacity is not well established. Here, we fabricate ...
