Ni-Mo electrocatalysts are being studied for the hydrogen evolution reaction for the water-splitting reaction. These materials are studied in detail in terms of morphology, phase, composition and performance to follow changes these catalysts undergo during operation. Finally, with this knowledge in hand improvements will be made on the catalysts and the mode of operation to increase the stability of these systems as a whole.
From January 2020, Jochem will be assisting the research of prof. dr. ir. Bert Weckhuysen and dr. Ward van der Stam into in situ characterization of electrocatalytic conversion reactions as a technician.
