Nonequilibrium ferroelectric-ferroelastic 10-nm nanodomains : wrinkles, period-doubling, and power-law relaxation (2017-08-02) - Journal articleSince the 1935 work of Landau and Lifshitz and of Kittel in 1946 all ferromagnetic, ferroelectric, and ferroelastic domains have been thought to be straight-sided with domain widths proportional to the square root of the ...
Proton-coupled electron transfer enhances the electrocatalytic reduction of nitrite to NO in a bioinspired copper complex (2018-06-01) - Journal articleThe selective and efficient electrocatalytic reduction of nitrite to nitric oxide (NO) is of tremendous importance, both for the development of NO-release systems for biomedical applications and for the removal of nitrogen ...
Metal-organic framework-derived hybrid carbon nanocages as bifunctional electrocatalyst for oxygen reduction and evolution (2017-08-18) - Journal articleOxygen reduction reaction (ORR) and oxygen evolution reaction (OER) is cornerstone reactions of many renewable energy technologies. Developing cheap yet durable substitutes of precious metal catalysts, especially the ...
Design and study of novel gold complexes for efficient catalytic process towards the activation of alkynes (University of St Andrews, 2018-06-27) - ThesisGold has emerged as valuable tool for chemists. The physico-chemical properties of the metal centre make it exceptionally prone to activate multiple bonds, such as alkynes and alkenes. Thus, its utility in catalysis has ...
