Paper on 2-propanol oxidation published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces
Our paper with title Electrochemical oxidation of isopropanol on platinum-ruthenium nanoparticles studied with real-time product and dissolution analytics was published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. We study the reaction on platinum and platinum-ruthenium nanocatalysts, using unique tools for the real-time characterization of reaction and dissolution products, i.e. our flagship technique, the electrochemical real-time mass spectrometry (EC-RTMS) and online ICP/MS in collaboration with the Cherevko group. We identify the main shortcomings that need to be addressed for the development of efficient anodes for 2-propanol fuel cells. This work is part of the project Emission-free and highly emission-reduced rail traffic on non-electrified lines funded by The Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy. Congratulations, Peyman Khanipour!
