Non-aqueous gas diffusion electrodes for rapid ammonia synthesis from nitrogen and water-splitting-derived hydrogen

Non-aqueous gas diffusion electrodes for rapid ammonia synthesis from nitrogen and water-splitting-derived hydrogen

Non-polar gaseous reactants such as N2 and H2 exhibit low solubility and slow transport in non-aqueous solvents and conventional gas diffusion electrodes cannot avoid non-aqueous electrolyte penetration. Here, transport limitations and catalyst flooding in tetrahydrofuran are overcome by using a stainless steel cloth-based support for lithium-mediated ammonia synthesis paired with H2 oxidation.
