Investigating the Surface Extraction of Platinum Catalysts in Alkaline Media


Platinum (Pt) electrodes are crucial for clean power technologies like hydrogen fuel cells and electrolysis. However, the surface oxidation that occurs during such processes degrades catalyst performance and stability. To address this, researchers investigated the mechanisms of surface oxidation on Pt surface in alkaline media, a previously unexplored avenue of research. Their experiments revealed crucial insights that can aid in the development of next-generation catalysts, paving the way for a carbon-neutral society.
