Summary of "Spin Regulation on 2D Pd-Fe-Pt Nanomeshes Promotes Fuels Electrooxidations."

Spin engineering provides a powerful strategy for manipulating the interaction between electrons in d-orbital and oxygen-containing adsorbates, while little endeavor was performed to understand whether such strategy can make a prosperous enhancement for fuels electrooxidations. Herein, we demonstrate that spin engineering of trimetallic Pd-Fe-Pt nanomeshes (NMs) can achieve superior enhancement for fuels electrooxidations. Magnetization characterizations reveal that Pd59Fe27Pt14 NMs own the highest number of polarized spins (μb = 0.85 µB/f.u), playing an important role on facilitating the adsorption of OHads to promote the oxidation of COads, as confirmed by theoretical results. Consequently, the optimized Pd59Fe27Pt14 NMs exhibit excellent methanol oxidation reaction activity and stability with mass activity of 1.61 A mgPt-1, 2.6-fold and 7.3-fold larger than those of PtRu/C and Pt/C. Such catalysts also present exceptional performances in ethanol oxidation and formic acid oxidation reactions. Our work highlights a new strategy for designing efficient electrocatalysts for fuels electrooxidations and beyond.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A technique for detecting short-lived reactive FREE RADICALS in biological systems by providing a nitrone or nitrose compound for an addition reaction to occur which produces an ELECTRON SPIN RESONANCE SPECTROSCOPY-detectable aminoxyl radical. In spin trapping, the compound trapping the radical is called the spin trap and the addition product of the radical is identified as the spin adduct. (Free Rad Res Comm 1990;9(3-6):163)

Molecules which contain an atom or a group of atoms exhibiting an unpaired electron spin that can be detected by electron spin resonance spectroscopy and can be bonded to another molecule. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Chemical and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

A technique applicable to the wide variety of substances which exhibit paramagnetism because of the magnetic moments of unpaired electrons. The spectra are useful for detection and identification, for determination of electron structure, for study of interactions between molecules, and for measurement of nuclear spins and moments. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, 7th edition) Electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy is a variant of the technique which can give enhanced resolution. Electron spin resonance analysis can now be used in vivo, including imaging applications such as MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.

Cyclic N-oxide radical functioning as a spin label and radiation-sensitizing agent.

Naturally occurring complex liquid hydrocarbons which, after distillation, yield combustible fuels, petrochemicals, and lubricants.
