In the carbon-neutral era, hydrogen, which will replace fossil fuels, is attracting attention as a clean energy source in various industries. In particular, hydrogen production technology through water decomposition is an effective clean energy technology. Professor Duy Thanh Tran of Jeonbuk National University is a researcher who is doing advanced research in this field.
In the production of hydrogen through water decomposition, precious-metal-based compounds such as platinum (Pt), ruthenium dioxide (RuO2), and iridium dioxide (IrO2) are currently used as catalysts, which result in high costs for industrial applications due to their scarcity. Therefore, the core of the study is to replace precious metal compounds through the development of new catalysts for practical water decomposition.
To this end, Professor Duy Thanh Tran developed a very practical complex called NiCoP/CSs to confirm high efficiency in green hydrogen production, published a paper in the world journal Applied Catalysis b Environment (Impact Factor: 19.503), and is in the process of commercialization through technology transfer to companies. Another study showed excellent water decomposition performance through electrode catalysts based on Pt-Cu@CuxONWs/3DF, and this study was also published in a paper in the global journal Nano Energy (Impact Factor: 17.88) and is reaching the stage of commercialization through technology transfer to companies.
Professor Duy Thanh Tran's recent interest is the development of nanomaterials necessary for green hydrogen production. These studies are viewed to be opening a new horizon for non-precious-metal catalysts for energy conversion applications. Such successful research development is expected to bring opportunities for advanced hydrogen production technologies and market expansion along with green hydrogen energy in the hydrogen fuel cell industry.
