Engineers solve 'catalysis vs corrosion' mystery in electrochemical ozone production

Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh, Drexel University, and Brookhaven National Laboratory have uncovered how electrochemical ozone production (EOP) catalysts work at the atomic level. They found that nickel corrosion contributes to ozone generation, while nickel atoms promote chemical reactions that support the EOP process. Understanding this interplay between catalysis and corrosion could improve water treatment technologies, making them more sustainable and efficient. For more details, check the full article here:
