Electrolyte Engineering towards Efficient Water Splitting at Mild pH

Electrolyte Engineering towards Efficient Water Splitting at Mild pH
Marcus Tze-Kiat Ng, Kazuhiro Takanabe, Tatsuya Shinagawa
The Front Cover shows buffer ions participating as “catalysts” in the water splitting process. On the anode (left), oxygen evolves through the oxidation of water molecules to generate protons, which are captured and transported by the buffer species. These buffer species then carry the protons to the cathodic catalytic sites (right), where hydrogen is generated. The overall performance is significantly influenced by the mass transport of the buffer species and the kinetics of the electrocatalysts. Maximizing the flux of the buffer species can be systematically achieved by electrolyte engineering at near-neutral pH. More information can be found in the Full Paper by Shinagawa et al.
