Lecture by Professor Xiangdong Yao: Defective Carbons for Electrochemical Reactions: A Defect Catalysis Mechanism

Electrochemical reactions, e.g. oxygen reduction (ORR), hydrogen evolution (HER) and oxygen evolution reaction (OER), are key to energy conversion and storage. Up to now, platinum (Pt) exhibits the best performance, and Pt/C is the commercial cathode catalyst for the reactions.

Lecture by Professor Younan Xia: Colloidal Metal Nanocrystals: From Academic Studies to Industrial Applications

Although the first documented synthesis of colloidal metal nanocrystals can be traced back to the work by Michael Faraday in 1856, only within the last decade have methods become available for generating samples. For nanocrystals made of noble metals, the shape determines not only their chemical, plasmonic, and catalytic properties but also their relevance for electronic, photonic and catalytic applications.

Paying Attention to the Construction of Dormitory Culture to Help Students Grow and Become Talented

USTB is seeking to foment a good student dormitory culture that enables students to grow and develop their talents. This is done to create a positive, diligent, and realistic dormitory atmosphere in accordance to the School of Materials Science and Engineering’s objectives of encouraging growth and building a popular and long-term environment that is conducive to higher education.
