New Zealand:Development of electrocatalytic anodes for Alkaline Water electrolysers (PhD project)


Funded project in the field of Chemical engineering, Materials Science, electrochemistry, Energy and Hydrogen


BE(Hons), BSc(Hons), ME, MSc (should have either a chemical engineering, physical chemistry or material science background)


Water electrolysis is a reliable method of producing high purity hydrogen suitable for use in fuel cells or other industrial processes. In order to improve the efficiency of water electrolysers, the cell voltage must be decreased towards the theoretical potential of 1.48 V (thermo-neutral potential). In this project we aim to achieve this by applying thin electrocatalytic layers to low-cost nickel foam substrates. The electrocatalytic layer will increase the electrolyser performance in several ways [1]:
1. Increased surface area (more reaction sites per unit geometric area)
2. Increase electrocatalytic activity (exchange current)
3. Improved reaction mechanism
4. Improved gas - electrode -electrolyte interface
These electrocatalytic layers will be deposited using several methods. The standard method to deposit the oxygen evolution electrocatalytic layer will be by thermal decomposition [2-3]. This method has been applied to many electrocatalysts with great success due to the ease and controllability of the preparation method [4]. The second approach to deposition the anode and cathode electrocatalytic layers will be by electrodeposition. Cobalt oxide layers prepared by this method have shown good activity for the oxygen evolution reaction [5] and we believe the surface area (and thus performance) can be enhanced even further by using a templated electrodeposition process [6] to create a nanostructured oxide layer. Both the thermal and templated electrodeposition method can be carried out at industrial scale easily and cheaply.
The electrodes will be investigated using electrochemical techniques, electron microscopy, and x-ray diffraction. The electrochemical techniques will include cyclic voltammetry, half-cell polarisation curves and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). EIS is particularly powerful as we can assess the performance, surface area, ohmic resistances and any mass transport behaviour at the electrocatalytic layers while the electrodes are operating under industrial conditions. The performance and electrochemical behaviour of the electrode will be examined in standard aqueous electrochemical cells and in pilot scale water electrolysers.

The Commonwealth Shared Scholarships were set up by the Department for International Development (DFID) in 1986 as a unique partnership between the UK government and UK universities.The scholarships help academically excellent students from developing Commonwealth countries who could not normally afford to study in Britain. They are offered on taught Masters courses in subjects related to economic, social and technological development. It is hoped the students will go on to contribute towards developing their home countries.

LSBU has been unable to meet the high costs of the scholarship in previous years. However, this year we received a substantial donation from Nathu Puri which has allowed us to take part. Over the next 5 years, 10 students will now be able to study at LSBU with a full scholarship, covering their tuition fees, accommodation and expenses.

Participation costs must be understood as any compulsory administrative/operational cost related to the participation of the student in the EMMC (e.g. library, laboratory, tuition, social security and insurance costs, etc.).
