A deep dive into the electrified water-metal oxide interface at the nanoscale
Nanomaterials and nanotechnology have revolutionised applications from sensing to energy. The extremely small-scale structures of nanomaterials simultaneously afford them unique and exotic properties not seen in bulk materials – and help them get into tight spaces in the environment and the human body to which they perhaps should not have access. Nanoscale particles of metal oxide-based materials form an electric double layer at interfaces with liquids, the nature of which likely plays an integral role in the materials' functioning and degradation; yet, very little is known about this reactive region. The EU-funded DeepProton project will develop a deep learning-based multiscale modelling framework to gain insights for the benefit of safety, design and control.
