Descrizione Taking into account mass transport during the CO2 electroreduction process can help in understanding the reaction mechanisms and further in designing efficient catalysts. Based on a model which was previously developed by our group, and exploiting electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) measurements, the effect of mass transport during the CO2 electroreduction process can be studied.
The aim of this thesis is the correlation of the results of EIS characterization with those obtained by the bubble-induced mass transport modeling. Different metal-based (Au, Ag, Cu, Sn, …) catalysts will be employed, and the effects of potential and electrode rotation rate will be clarified, both in aqueous and non-aqueous electrolytic solutions. The thesis work can be approached from the experimental or modeling point of views, or even a combination of the two.
