Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are one of the most promising energy conversion devices due to their high efficiency, low pollution and fuel flexibility. Unfortunately, when hydrocarbons are used as a fuel, for example in the form of a biogas, solid carbon can deposit on the anode surface. This process leads to the degradation of the fuel cell performance. A possible solution to this problem is to apply an additional catalytic material,...
In recent years one dimensional (1D) nanostructures (nanotubes, nanowires, nanoribbons and nanorods) have been widely studied. Among studied nano-materials, the greatest interest can be seen for zinc oxide (ZnO). However, there is still a need for simple, inexpensive and reproducible fabrication method. In the literature different fabrication methods can be found, most of them requires expensive equipment and involve complex...
Air pollution becomes an increasing problem in the recent years. There is a need to develop more sensitive gas sensors. Much effort has been performed to develop different types of gas sensors, such as electrochemical sensors or polymer sensors. One of the most promising approaches to improve sensors performance is the application of the nanostructures as sensing materials. State of the art of quantum...
