New Catalysts for the Hydrogen and Oxygen Evolution Reactions
An arsenal of electrochemical and spectroscopic methodologies, which in the case of metallocorroles is very rich, was applied for acquiring highly valuable information about the mechanisms of action (see upper part of the Figure for the hydrogen evolution reaction). Preliminary results regarding water oxidation with the aid of immobilized catalysts (see lower part of the Figure) will be presented as well.
