Hydrogen is considered to be a very efficient and clean fuel since it is a renewable and non-polluting gas with a high energy density; thus, it has drawn much attention as an alternative fuel, in order to alleviate the issue of global warming caused by the excess use of fossil fuels. In this work, a novel Cu/ZnS/COF composite photocatalyst with a core-shell structure was synthesized for photocatalytic hydrogen production via water splitting.
hot Hot corrosion is a serious problem in petrochemical heaters, boilers, and gas turbines where a material with good oxidation resistance can oxidize severely in the presence of salts and oxides. Hot corrosion is a complex process which involves dissolution or weakening of the passive oxide layer responsible for oxidation resistance and promotion of oxidation […]
Electrochemical reactions represent essential processes in fundamental chemistry that foster a wide range of applications. Although most electrochemical reactions in bulk substances can be well described by the classical Marcus-Gerischer charge transfer theory, the realistic reaction character and mechanism in dimensionally confined systems remain unknown. The oxidation rate is correlated quantitatively with various crystallographic and […]
Researchers have developed a revolutionary new type of epoxy coating with remarkable self-healing properties. This breakthrough utilizes poly(urea–formaldehyde) microcapsules filled with a potent combination of linseed oil and benzotriazole to achieve superior corrosion resistance and self-repair capabilities. Here’s what makes this technology so groundbreaking: Self-healing: When the coating gets damaged, the microcapsules rupture, releasing the linseed oil and […]
