    讲座摘要:

    Low temperature fuel cells areelectrochemical devices that convert chemical energy directly to electricity.They have great potential for both stationary and transportation applicationsand are expected to help address the energy and environmental problems thathave become prevalent in our society. Despite their great promise,commercialization has been hindered by lower than predicted efficiencies andhigh loading of Pt-based electrocatalysts in the electrodes. For more than fivedecades, extensive work has being focused on the development of novelelectrocatalysts for fuel cell reactions. In this talk, I will present recentprogress in developing advanced electrocatalysts mainly for oxygen reductionreaction in my group, with an emphasis on core-shell and shape controllednanocrystals. Fuel cell testing results on these advanced catalysts will beshared. The mechanisms for activity enhancement will also be discussed based onthe results of density functional theory calculations.
