Abstract:
Electrochemistry is crucial in many areas of technology and has many applications, with the potential for even broader use, hindered only by the current limitations of the technology. A good example is the low uptake and slow development of novel fuel cells, due to the less than promised performance in comparison to combustion engines. One way of improving the performance of electrochemical processes is to redesign the electrode, in particular by taking advantage of the recent advances in nano-carbon technology. The aim of this study is to investigate novel electrode designs using nano-carbon to improve electrochemical processes Presented are different applications of nano-carbons including nitrate reduction for water treatment and sensing, oxidation of ammonia and oxalate.
