Surface Electrochemical Reactivity in Electrocatalysis: A combined Theoretical and Experimental Approach

Cel

The aim of ELCAT is to train a new generation of young researchers in experimental and theoretical research methods in electrocatalysis. The scientific objectives are to address the problem of achieving specific reactivity in electrochemical transformations and to establish predictive tools based on quantum chemical calculations and computational modelling. The electrocatalytic properties of nanostructured metal and metal-oxide interfaces will be investigated using state of the art instrumental and experimental techniques. Four important electrochemical reactions have been chosen for their general importance in energy production, environmental control and clean chemicals production. Industrial participation in the Network will provide an understanding of the technological applications of electrocatalysis. The training objectives are to provide the young researchers with scientific skills as well as leadership qualifications to enable them to become established as independent researcherers in new areas thus providing an attractive vision for their research careers For this to be achieved, ELCAT will provide training by interdisciplinary research involving several laboratories, exchanges between laboratories having complementary expertise and instrumentation, participation in workshops and conferences and training by courses arranged by the Network in both scientific issues and complementary skills. This project is timely due to the present confluence of theoretical and instrumental research techniques of unprecedented power, such as new computational methods, a new understanding of electron transfer reactions at the nanoscale and advanced in-situ spectroscopies and Scanning Probe Microscopies. There are new industrial requirements derived from important societal issues resulting in an urgent need for a new generation of trained young researchers with a modern background in experimental and theoretical techniques for applications in electrocatalysis.
