Nanoelectrochemical Maps Make A Debut
A scanning probe microscopy (SPM) method can interrogate oxygen reduction and oxygen evolution reactions on a scale nearly one 100-millionth the size of what is possible with conventional electrochemical methods, according to a study in Nature Chemistry (DOI: 10.1038/nchem.1112). Information derived from the method may lead to design improvements in materials used in air-breathing electrochemical devices such as fuel cells and metal-air batteries. The technique, which was . . .
