Science fund of Republic of Serbia – PROMIS program 2020-2022

Rational design of multifunctional electrode interface for efficient electrocatalytic hydrogen production

Implemented by the University of Belgrade – Faculty of Physical Chemistry (FPC) and the Institute for multidisciplinary research of University of Belgrade (IMSI)

The goal is to develop a new family of noble metal-free electrocatalysts for hydrogen evolution reaction guided by a combination of multiscale modeling and rational computational design with synthesis, characterization, and experimental testing.

The concept is based on the atomic-scale understanding and control of various interfacial processes at complex electrode interfaces in order to boost the hydrogen evolution reaction in alkaline media.

The project is led by Dr. Igor Pašti (FPC). The team includes Dr. Biljana Šljukić Paunković (FPC), Dr. Uroš Lačnjevac (IMSI), Dr. Nemanja Gavrilov (FPC), Dr. Ana Dobrota (FPC) and Aleksandar Jovanović (FPC)
