Molecular Scale Electrochemistry and Nontraditional Electrochemical Materials Science

Final Report Summary - ELETRONANOMAT (Molecular Scale Electrochemistry and Nontraditional Electrochemical Materials Science)

ELECTRONANOMAT, “Molecular Scale Electrochemistry and Non-traditional Electrochemical Materials Science”, is a three-year IRSES EU staff exchange program, run from 1st Jan., 2013-31st Dec., 2015. Total EU funding was 287.000 Euro, distributed among eight internationally recognized European and Chinese research groups. ELECTRONANOMAT has run successfully with a large number of experienced (ER) and early stage researcher (ESR) exchange visits, and a large number of published joint scientific Chinese and European partner results in high-profile peer-reviewed international scientific journals. Three successful workshops held in Copenhagen, 2013, Shanghai, 2014, and Changchun, 2015 have supported the program. ELECTRONANOMAT contributions have been presented at major international conferences, and an undergraduate lecture and laboratory course given at an international summer school at Shanghai University.
Joint published and publishable results have been obtained in all planned work packages. Areas in particular focus have been: molecular electronics and sophisticated single-molecule science; new materials in molecular electrochemistry based on graphene and other carbon materials, metallic and semiconductor nanoparticles including hybrids of these materials; applications of the new materials in supercapacitors, high-power materials, and heterogeneous catalysis; application of single-crystal metal electrodes together with spectroscopic techniques in electrocatalysis and molecular adsorption from aqueous and ionic liquid media; and, use of theoretical methods to model monolayer adsorption and important electrochemical processes such as the electrochemical oxidation of carbon monoxide.
The results and scientific contacts established will constitute the basis for forthcoming new cooperation among ELECTRONANOMAT’s research groups and with other actors.
