15/01/2021 - Welcome Valentín!
Dr. Valentín Briega Martos received is PhD from the University of Alicante (Spain) and his previous research was related to the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) on Pt single crystal electrodes. Valentín will investigate the mechanisms of the electrochemical oxidation, restructuring, and dissolution of Pt from a fundamental point of view by using Pt single crystal electrodes and shape-controlled Pt nanoparticles in mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and surface X-ray diffraction (SXRD) measurements. This is important for achieving a complete understanding of Pt catalyst degradation on fuel cells.
