Mathematically designed graphene has improved electrocatalytic activity

An international research group has improved graphene’s ability to catalyze the ‘hydrogen evolution reaction,’ which releases hydrogen as a result of passing an electronic current through water. They designed a mathematically predicted graphene electrocatalyst, and confirmed its performance using high resolution electrochemical microscopy and computational modelling. The findings were published in the journal Advanced Science.
