Researchers from Soongsil University Report New Studies and Findings in the Area of Chalcogens (Single-crystalline mesoporous MO2N nanobelts with an enhanced electrocatalytic activity for oxygen reduction reaction)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Investigators publish new report on Chalcogens. According to news reporting originating in Seoul, South Korea, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "We demonstrate mesoporous molybdenum nitride nanobelts as a cathode catalyst synthesized by a topotactic reaction process."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Soongsil University, "The molybdenum nitride nanobelts exhibit a single-crystalline face-centered cubic Mo2N. Moreover, the molybdenum nitride nanobelts exhibit a mesoporous structure with similar to 4.3 nm as an average pore size and similar to 41.9 m(2) g(-1) as a specific surface area."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The improved electrocatalytic activity of mesoporous molybdenum nitride nanobelts toward oxygen reduction reaction in alkaline solution might be mainly attributed to high specific surface area and mesoporous structure."
