Galvanic electrocatalytic layers in water alkali electrolysis
The aim of this project is development of an efficient electrocatlyst for cathodic hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) in an alkaline environement based on galvanic modification of the Ni substrate. After identification of the optimal coatings properties and deposition method the techniques will be transferred to the 3D porous electrodes to enhance process efficiency and tested in a laboratory and pilot scale alkaline water electrolysis cell.
Optimization of Electrochemical Ferrates(VI) Synthesis
The aim of this project is characterization of chemical and electrochemical oxidation processes taking place at the surface of an anode made of iron based materials in strongly alkaline solutions. Deeper understanding of mechanism of these processes allows to enhance efficiency of synthesis of Ferrate (VI) making it economically viable.
