Book Description :

To fulfill the needs for developing the alternative energy technologies, searching for the adequate electrode materials which catalyze the electrochemical reactions utilized in devices such as fuel cell, Li-ion batteries, and related applications such as hydrogen generation and storage, has been a longstanding challenge. Among various catalysts, transition metal oxides (TMO) draw great attentions due to their low-cost, high stability, and, most importantly, a great variety of structures and electrical properties. Nonetheless, studying electrochemical reactions catalyzed by TMO is a challenging task due to the possible multivalent systems, flexible coordinations of lattice atoms, adjustable surface structures and diverse surface species. In the past decades, many innovative approaches have been explored with encouraging results; however, the mechanisms of incorporating the bulk/surface TMO structures in various chemical reactions still remain unclear. In this dissertation, using quantum mechanical calculations, we attempt to improve the fundamental understandings of how structures and electronic properties of TMO materials facilitate the electrochemical reactions of interest. To identify the possible causes for CuO and Cu structures having different selectivity in catalysis, in Chapter 3, we study the CO2 reduction reaction (CO2RR) catalyzed by CuO (111) surface structure, and compare the results with the more widely studied Cu (100) surface. The roles played by the electronic properties of two materials in their selectivity are elucidated. In Chapter 4 and 5, we study the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) for LiCoO2 surface structure. The structures and stabilities of Li-, O-, and H-terminated surface are investigated comprehensively. Based on the results, the formation of H-terminated surface results from Li/H exchange at the solid/liquid interface is proposed (Chapter 4). Along with the findings, we explore the possible mechanisms for the OER for non-metal terminated LiCoO2 surface (Chapter 5). In Chapter 6, we study the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) for Co3O4 (111) H-terminated surface structure. The possible reaction steps for both four-electron and two-electron pathway are investigated. In Chapter 7, the PO4-decicient LiFePO4/FePO4 structures are investigated to understand how the presence of polyanion defects in the matrices could potentially improve the performance of the materials as electrodes in Li-ion batteries

Book Description :

Metal oxide nanomaterials exhibit interesting electrical and photochemical properties because of their size, stability, and high surface area that render them as great choices in fabricating alternative electrode materials for electrochemical energy storage and sensor applications. The hybridization of metal oxides with other materials lead to the improvement in electrical conductivity, stability, and electron transfer kinetics during the electrocatalytic reactions. These key factors result in greater sensitivity of the sensor materials towards the analyte molecules. This book reviews the electrochemical determination of a variety of toxic chemical contaminants using metal oxide-based nanocomposite materials. Ultrasensitive and selective detection of toxic chemical contaminants is important and demanding, especially for monitoring and controlling environmental pollution. In recent years, metal oxide-based nanocomposite materials have shown high potential in the electrochemical detection of heavy metals, inorganic anions, phenolic compounds, pesticides, and chemical warfare reagents. Metal Oxides in Nanocomposite-Based Electrochemical Sensors for Toxic Chemicals comprehensively reviews this topic. In addition to the instrumental simplicity, the electrochemical methods show the improved sensor performance through the synergetic effect of metal oxide and other electroactive nanomaterial present in the nanocomposite. Thus, detailed information on the electrochemical sensing of toxic chemical contaminants using metal oxide-based nanomaterials are discussed. The recent progress in developing electrochemical sensors using metal oxide-based nanocomposite materials and perspectives on future opportunities in sensor research and development are addressed in the book.
