New Paper: How thick is thick for electrocatalytic activity?

Exciting news! A recent study published in Small titled ‘Contribution of the Sub-Surface to Electrocatalytic Activity in Atomically Precise La0.7Sr0.3MnO3 Heterostructures’ provides new insight into designing efficient electrocatalytic nanomaterials and core-shell architectures. The study investigates the role of catalytically active sub-surface layers in electrocatalytic activity by employing atomic-scale thickness control of the La0.7Sr0.3MnO3 films and heterostructures, without altering the catalyst/electrolyte interface. The observation leads to the definition of an “electrochemically-relevant depth” on the order of 10 unit cells. Check out the paper here
