New Chalcogens Data Have Been Reported by Investigators at Carl von Ossietzky University (Pt Catalyst Supported within TiO2 Mesoporous Films for Oxygen Reduction Reaction)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Research findings on Chalcogens are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting out of Oldenburg, Germany, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "In this study, dispersed Pt nanoparticles into mesoporous TiO2 thin films are fabricated by a facile electrochemical deposition method as electro-catalysts for oxygen reduction reaction. The mesoporous TiO2 thin films coated on the fluorine-doped tin oxide glass by screen printing allow a facile transport of reactants and products."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Carl von Ossietzky University, "The structural properties of the resulted Pt/TiO2 electrode are evaluated by field emission scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry, X-ray diffraction, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Cyclic voltammetry measurements are performed to study the electrochemical properties of the Pt/TiO2 electrode."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Further study demonstrates the stability of the Pt catalyst supported within TiO2 mesoporous films for the oxygen reduction reaction."
