(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2020)Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), large molecules comprised of multiple aromatic rings like anthracene or pyrene, are a notable intermediate and byproduct in combustion or pyrolysis of hydrocarbon fuels. On their ...
Tuning geometric and electronic structure of noble metal with core-shell platform as enhanced catalysts (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2020)The noble metals (NMs) are special materials satisfying the Sabatier principle which bind adsorbates neither too strongly nor too weakly. Along with the resistance to corrosion and bulk oxidation, this makes noble metals ...
