Rapid Joule-heating synthesis of metal/carbon-based electrocatalysts for efficient carbon dioxide reduction

In comparison with conventional pyrolysis processes, the researchers developed a rapid thermal shock method to achieve a uniform dispersion of metal nanoparticles on carbon supports. This approach effectively prevented nanoparticle aggregation, ensuring the full utilization of active sites.

What Was Behind the 2021-2022 Energy Crisis Within Europe?

A team of researchers had already been working with electricity price data for years before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, exploring statistics and developing forecasting methods. Now they zero in on how prices in different countries relate and how countries were affected by the energy crisis and address the interdependencies of different markets.
