Professor Michelle Coote - Title Electrochemical and Electrostatic Catalysis of Chemical Reactions »

1pm 23 April 2020

Chemists appreciate that the rate of redox reactions can be manipulated by means of an electrical potential gradient. However, it was only in 2016 that we showed that an external electric field can also be used to catalyze non-redox reactions, thereby opening up a new dimension to chemical catalysis.
