  1. 1. Electrochemical Reactions in Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells

    Author : Maria Wesselmark; Svein Sunde; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Fuel cell; model electrodes; oxygen reduction; methanol oxidation; formic acid oxidation; hydrogen oxidation; CO oxidation; degradation; tungsten oxide; carbon support; Bränslecell; modellelektroder; syrgasreduktion; metanoloxidation; myrsyraoxidation; vätgasoxidation; CO oxidation; degradering; wolfram oxid; kolsupport; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : The polymer electrolyte fuel cell converts the chemical energy in a fuel, e.g. hydrogen or methanol, and oxygen into electrical energy. The high efficiency and the possibility to use fuel from renewable sources make them attractive as energy converters in future sustainable energy systems. READ MORE

  2. 2. Structural, Electronic and Reactive Properties of Pentapyridyl - Base Metal Complexes : Relevance for Water Oxidation Catalysis

    Author : Manuel Boniolo; Johannes Messinger; Antoni Llobet; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Water oxidation; Base metal complexes; Redox potential; Spin crossover; Magnetic anisotropy; Chemistry with specialization in Molecular Biomimetics; Kemi med inriktning mot molekylär biomimetik;

    Abstract : The rationalization of chemical-physical proprieties of transition metal complexes is fundamental in order to understand and tune their reactivity. In this thesis, a systematic investigation of the geometrical and electronic properties of [M(Py5OH)Cl]+ complexes (M= Mn, Fe, Co, Ni) has been performed, and their ability to act as molecular water oxidation catalysts has been probed.

  3. 3. Computational Studies on Homogeneous Water Oxidation Catalysts

    Author : Ge Li; Mårten S. G. Ahlquist; Moyses Araujo; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computational studies; homogeneous; water oxidation catalysts; ruthenium; iron; mechanisms; Teoretisk kemi och biologi; Theoretical Chemistry and Biology;

    Abstract : To combat the increasing energy demand and climate change, artificial photosynthesis is a promising approach to producing renewables by storing energy into chemicals and fuels. Water oxidation, responsible for offering electrons and protons to the reduction reactions, suffers from slow kinetics. READ MORE

  4. 4. Innovative process solutions towards recycling of salt cake from secondary aluminum smelting

    Author : Peng Li; Lidong Teng; Sankaran Subramanian; KTH; []

  5. 5. Chlorine Induced Corrosion in Biomass and Waste Fired Boilers: Laboratory and Field Investigations

    Author : Nicklas Folkeson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; austenitic; chloride; biomass; high temperature corrosion; ferritic; waste; steel;

    Abstract : The fireside corrosion in biomass and waste fired boilers is widely believed to arise from the presence of chlorine-containing compounds in the fuels. Although many researchers have studied the influence of such compounds on the high temperature corrosion of various steels, the mechanisms underlying chlorine-induced corrosion are still poorly understood.
