Classical strong metal-support interaction (SMSI), an important concept in heterogeneous catalysis, has been studied extensively since it was termed by Tauster et al. in the late 1970s. The classical SMSI was widely found for platinum group metals supported on reducible oxides, such as TiO2 and CeO2, upon high-temperature reduction pretreatment. However, unlike platinum group metals, it has been well-recognized fo...

The research group of Professor Yan Xiang from Beihang University successfully prepared a single-atom copper catalyst for the oxygen reduction reaction of the fuel cell cathode. This study is published in Journal of Materials Chemistry A entitled as "A copper single-atom catalyst towards efficient and durable oxygen reduction for fuel cells" as a front cover paper.

Prof. Sun's group in Beijing University of Chemical Technology combined amorphous ruthenium sulfide (the price of ruthenium is only 1/3 of platinum) with graphene to develop a Pt-like activity electrochemical HER catalyst, which can work very well in acidic, neutral and alkaline solutions. It also can effectively resist the pH change during the catalytic process. The relevant results were published as an inside co...

Prof. Sun’ research group in Beijing University of Chemical Technology for the first time realized the preparation and detailed study of monoatomic Ru based catalyst efficient oxygen evolution reaction by virtue of the electronic coupling between CoFe-LDH and monoatomic ruthenium. The related results were published on April 12, 2019 in the Nature Communications journal:

Proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) is a promising sustainable energy conversion device that can efficiently convert chemical energy stored in fuel into electricity, however its commercial application is limited by the high-cost Pt-based precious metal catalyst. Therefore, the development of low-cost, high-performance Pt-free catalysts is a research hotspot in the field of electrocatalysis. Professor Jiangl...

Prof. Jianglan Shui’s research team at Beihang University synthesized a series of Co-N-C single-atom catalysts with different densities of Co-N4 active sites for a quantitative study of the structure-property relationship. Related research was published in Applied Catalysis B: Environmental on June 13, 2019.
