Researchers from Beijing University of Chemical Technology Report Findings in Chalcogens [Hydrothermal synthesis of alpha-MnO2/MIL-101(Cr) composite and its bifunctional electrocatalytic activity for oxygen reduction/evolution reactions]

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Data detailed on Chalcogens have been presented. According to news reporting originating from Changzhou, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "An alpha-MnO2/MIL-101(Cr) composite catalyst was synthesised using a hydrothermal process."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the Beijing University of Chemical Technology, "In this composite, alpha-MnO2 nanoparticles are embedded in an MIL-101(Cr) matrix with abundant micropores and a high specific surface area, which improves the reactant's accessibility to catalytically active sites, resulting in a significant improvement in oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) and oxygen evolution reaction (OER) in an alkaline electrolyte."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The strong interactions between alpha-MnO2 nanoparticles and MIL-101(Cr) matrix result in a high structural stability and therefore excellent activity stability."
