Combinatorial Electrocatalysis

Electrochemical reactions play an important role - from energy production in fuel cells and batteries to industrially important processes such as the production of chlorine and the electrohydrodimerization of acrylonitrile to adiponitrile that is used in the production of nylon. Electrocatalysis deals with the modification of the overall rates of electrochemical reactions so that selectivity of these reactions, their yield, and efficiency are maximized. The main focus is on the electron-transfer reactions that take place at the electrode/electrolyte interface with electrochemical parameters such as potential and current being the major driving forces for the reaction.
