Super Sensitive Sensor For The Detection Of Hydroxyl Free Radicals in PEM Fuel Cells
Project ID: D2020-04 Background: Owing to increased threat to the environment, the market for eco-friendly hydrogen fuel cell vehicle is expected to hit $42 billion by 2026. However, concerns over the degradation of the current fuel cell technology is one of the biggest shortcomings. The durability issue persists in the ion exchange membrane that...
Super Sensitive Sensor for the Detection of Hydroxyl Free Radicals
Project ID: D2020-04 Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are well known for their extreme reactivity. The impact of free radicals on medical and clinical fields is critical as hydroxyl radicals (OH) can be used as biomarkers for the detection of aging, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s diseases. Because certain types of free radicals are known...
Homogenous and Reusable Superacid Polymer Catalyst for the Synthesis of 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural from Glucose
Project ID: D2018-18Background Combinations of Brønsted and Lewis acid catalysts are generally used for the production of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) from glucose. However, reutilization of these catalysts is challenging due to their solubility in reaction medium. Heterogeneous catalysts containing both types of acid sites are not usually...
