Hydrogen as a promising clean chemical fuel is an ideal energy carrier for sustainable energy applications. Electrochemical reduction of water for hydrogen production is an important component of several developing clean-energy technologies, but an efficient electrocatalyst for the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) is needed to afford high current at low overpotential. We are now focusing on the design and development of highly efficient HER catalysts and hydrogen evolution cathodes made from earth-abundant elements toward electrochemical water splitting for large-scale hydrogen fuel production. We are also putting efforts to develop integrated high-active water oxidation anodes.
We are looking for intelligent, self-motivated, and dedicated persons to work together for big science. If you are interested in our research directions, please feel free to contact us.
