Impact of palladium/palladium hydride conversion on electrochemical CO2 reduction via in-situ transmission electron microscopy and diffraction

An additional Friday publication update! Congratulations on a great #NatureCommunications from authors @Ahmed Abdellah of the group of @Leyla Soleymani and @Drew Higgins! In this newest publication, they showed how to remarkably do #diffraction at operando level during in situ electrochemistry. They used the #PoseidonAX system to look at Pd-based catalysts for the CO2 conversion … Read More

Functionalized MXene filmes with substantially improved low voltage actuation

Tuesday publication update! Have you ever wanted to see MXenes in the electron microscope in real time using electrochemstry? The authors of this newest publication have looked at Ti3C2Tx MXene Film for High-Performance Actuators using the #PoseidonAX system! The enhancement of tetrabutylammonium (TBA) in MXene catapults the in-plane actuation strain by a staggering 337%, amplifying … Read More

Thinner Electrochemistry E-chips are Here!

New E-chip Alert! We have two new E-chips for Poseidon electrochemistry and we so excited to share them with you! The first one is a new, thinner-spacer electrochemistry E-chip that give you the ultimate flexibility to determine the liquid layer thickness. Now going down to 100 nm, you can find the best balance between liquid … Read More

Goethite mineral dissolution to probe the chemistry of radiolytic water in liquid-phase transmission electron microscopy

In this recent publication, the authors have used liquid phase electron microscopy to observe the dynamic behavior of geothite during dissolution under the irradiation of the electron beam. Kinetic simulations of the different radiolysis species provides insight into the redox and acidity of the liquid during the exposure to the beam. These interactions are very … Read More

Degratation Mechanisms of Supported Pt Nanocatalysts in Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells: An Operando Study through Liquid Cell Transmission Electron Microscopy

In this publication, the authors have researched a typical platinum fuel cell at nanometer scale, using the #PoseidonAX system with electrochemistry. The 3 nm platinum on carbon particles were observed after a large amount of CV cycles in which the particles grew over time. The growth was followed using in situ liquid phase electron microscopy. … Read More
