Discovery and design of novel catalysts from computational chemistry

The discovery and design of novel materials as efficient catalysts are critical for the development of innovative clean energy and environmental technology. For example, hydrogen production involves hydrogen evolution and oxygen evolution reactions - oxygen reduction/evolution reactions are important in fuel cell and air battery technology, carbon dioxide reduction is related to the mitigation of carbon emission, and nitrogen fixation is linked to the fertiliser production process.In principle, the catalytic properties of a material are completely determined by its electronic …

Microbial electrolysis

Microbial electrolysis has been shown to produce hydrogen in substantial amounts, which in turn can be utilised as a carbon-neutral source of energy. However, it is cost-prohibiting to use reagent-grade chemicals as a carbon source for this process. Therefore, low-cost sustainable alternatives are needed. …
