Electrochemical conversion and production of gaseous compounds such as hydrogen and syngas could contribute to substantially reducing greenhouse gases as well as preserve fossil resources. In the field of on-coming technologies, fuel cells and electrolysers are expected to jump from small-scale production (kW) to Megawatt or Gigawatt levels in this decade. Electrochemical CO2 conversion (PtX) into syngas, chemicals or synthetic fuel is no longer a vision. In the field of technical electrolysis, implementation of oxygen-depolarized cathodes already allows for an impressive decrease in energy consumption during industrial chlorine production of about 30%. In order to meet all these ambitious targets, however, highly performing, stable catalysts and gas diffusion electrodes (GDEs) are urgently needed in order to be able to compete with established technologies such as combustion engines and batteries for transportation or with chemical processes such as methane reforming for H2 production.

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.
You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).
Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.
You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).
If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
