|Title:||Additive manufacturing of alloy and multi-metal oxide coated electrodes for electrolysis of water||Authors:||Hegde, Chidanand||Keywords:||Engineering::Manufacturing||Issue Date:||2020||Publisher:||Nanyang Technological University||Source:||Hegde, C.

Herein, we attempted to (i) synthesize active catalysts based on earth-abundant Ni, (ii) develop an additive manufacturing process for rapid and low-cost fabrication of electrodes. Firstly, we report Cu, Fe co-doped Ni that shows remarkable activity for hydrogen evolution reaction. Doping of Cu and Fe improved the specific activity of Ni by 4 times and tuned the ΔGH of Ni from -0.258 eV to -0.131 eV. Secondly, we report NiAg0.4 heterogeneous alloy that shows Pt/C-like activity for hydrogen evolution. Experimental results accompanied by the theoretical calculations establish the role of the Ni-Ag interface in promoting hydrogen evolution. Finally, we report a novel femtosecond laser direct writing process to fabricate electrodes coated with multi-metal oxide and alloy nanoparticles. The fabricated electrodes show remarkable activity and durability for alkaline electrolysis.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/146358||DOI:||10.32657/10356/146358||Rights:||This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License (CC BY-NC 4.0).||Fulltext Permission:||embargo_20230207||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
