Edge-exposed MoS2 nano-assembled structures are designed for high hydrogen evolution reaction activity and long term stability. The number of sulfur edge sites of nano-assembled spheres and sheets is confirmed by Raman spectroscopy and EXAFS analysis. By controlling the MoS2 morphology with the formation of nano-assembled spheres with the assembly of(More)
Demand on the practical synthetic approach to the high performance electrocatalyst is rapidly increasing for fuel cell commercialization. Here we present a synthesis of highly durable and active intermetallic ordered face-centered tetragonal (fct)-PtFe nanoparticles (NPs) coated with a "dual purpose" N-doped carbon shell. Ordered fct-PtFe NPs with the size(More)
Pt-skin surfaces were successfully fabricated by the chemical deposition of additional Pt on corrugated Pt-Ni nanoparticles with Pt-skeleton surfaces. Compared to the Pt-skin formed by heat annealing, the chemically-tuned Pt-skin had a higher Pt coordination number and surface crystallinity, which resulted in superior ORR activity and durability.
Metal and metal oxide nanoparticles (NPs) supported on high surface area carbon (NP/Cs) were prepared by the physical vapor deposition of bulk materials on an α-D-glucose (Glu) substrate, followed by the deposition of the NPs on carbon supports. Using Glu as a carrier for the transport of NPs from the bulk materials to the carbon support surfaces, ultrafine(More)
Heat treatment of nanoparticles could induce the surface rearrangement for more stable facet exposure induced by thermodynamics. By changing the heat treatment environment, we confirmed the correlation between the oxygen reduction activity and the effect of surface oxide and the degree of surface rearrangement of Pt nanoparticles. Native surface oxide was(More)

Heat treatment of Pt based nanoparticles under various conditions is one of the conventional ways to modify the electrocatalytic properties for enhancement of the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). However, the effect of the heat treatment atmosphere on the ORR activity especially upon specific anion adsorption still remains unclear. This paper investigates(More)
Electrochemical water splitting is one of the most promising systems by which to store energy produced from sustainable sources, such as solar and wind energy. Designing robust and stable electrocatalysts is urgently needed because of the relatively sluggish kinetics of the anodic reaction, i.e. the oxygen evolution reaction (OER). In this study, we(More)
The residual surfactant organic molecules on electrocatalysts are expected to enhance the tolerance to specific anion adsorption, whereas the surfactants have been generally regarded as contaminants that block active surfaces. In this study, the Pt nanoparticles with adsorbed surfactants were prepared, and their electrochemical characteristics at various(More)
In this paper: we describe that the actuator relocation has effect on singularity, Jacobian and kinematic isotropy perjormance of parallel robots and manipulators. The actuator relocation is related to the location where actuator is mounted, actuatedjoint and fransmission ratio of actuator with gears. The actuators can be located far from the joint they(More)
