    Preferential oxidation (PROX) of CO in H2 is the most efficient way to remove CO from a practical reformate stream for PEM H2-O2 fuel cells. Pt/Al2O3 has long been known as a suitable catalyst for this purpose. Over the conventional Pt/Al2O3 catalyst, however, PROX of CO in H2 has been known to...

    Systematic density functional studies revealed that PtAu(111) significantly alters the reaction kinetics of methanol oxidation from that on Pt(111). PtAu(111) facilitates the reaction path that starts from cleavage of the OH bond. Furthermore, it prevents CH2O from immediate decomposition as on...

    We fabricated p-i-n diodes by sputtering alternating layers of silicon dioxide and silicon rich oxide with a nominal atomic ratio O/Si=0.7 onto quartz substrates with in situ boron for p-type and phosphorus for n-type doping. After crystallization, dark and illuminated I-V characteristics show a...
