    • Jakkid's research work was devoted to identify the best non-precious cathode catalyst for the Anionic exchange polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells. He synthesized the electrocatalysts by a single-step high pressure method without using any additional gas/reagents. He found that Fe-N-C catalyst outperformed Pt/C catalyst for the oxygen reduction reaction and activity is related to the presence of high amount of Fe-N4 sites in the catalyst. During his PhD, he published 9 papers and presented his work at leading international conferences.
      • We wish him all the best for his career.

  • Kriangsak's research was focused on the development of polymer electrolyte membranes for PEMFC operating at low humidity. During his PhD work, he developed a simple route to prepare porous 1D metal oxide nanostructures and explored in composite membranes (PTFSA and Hydrocarbon). During his PhD, he published 6 papers, presented work at several International conferences and won several prizes. The main achievement was to understand how to retain water in membranes and its influence on the fuel cell performance, durability. We, AEML wish him all the best for his career.

  • We developed an efficient bi-functional oxygen electrocatalyst using a rational synthetic approach. The work has been accepted in ACS catalysis.
