Tuning CO2 electroreduction efficiency at Pd shells on Au nanocores

Author affiliations

Abstract

The faradaic efficiency of CO2 electroreduction is significantly affected by the thickness of Pd nanoshells on Au cores. The ratio of hydrogen evolution to CO2 reduction was determined by differential electrochemical mass spectrometry. Decreasing the Pd shell thickness from 10 to 1 nm leads to a twofold increase in faradaic efficiency.
