An ultra-high vacuum electrochemical/mass spectrometry study of anodic decomposition of a protic ionic liquid (2018)
Journal Article
Goodwin, S., Gibson, J., Jones, R., & Walsh, D. A. (2018). An ultra-high vacuum electrochemical/mass spectrometry study of anodic decomposition of a protic ionic liquid. Electrochemistry Communications, 90, doi:10.1016/j.elecom.2018.04.013. ISSN 1388-2481

Protic ionic liquids (PILs) are ionic liquids that are formed by proton transfer from Brønsted acids to Brønsted bases, and which are being proposed for use in a wide range of electrochemical devices. In this contribution, we describe electrolysis of... Read More

Electroanalysis of neutral precursors in protic ionic liquids and synthesis of high-ionicity ionic liquids (2017)
Journal Article
Sean, G., Daniel, S., Joshua, G., Jones, R., & Walsh, D. A. (in press). Electroanalysis of neutral precursors in protic ionic liquids and synthesis of high-ionicity ionic liquids. Langmuir, 33(34), doi:10.1021/acs.langmuir.7b02294. ISSN 0743-7463

Protic ionic liquids (PILs) are ionic liquids that are formed by transferring protons from Brønsted acids to Brønsted bases. While they nominally consist entirely of ions, PILs can often behave as though they contain a significant amount of neutral... Read More

Closed bipolar electrodes for spatial separation of H2 and O2 evolution during water electrolysis and the development of high-voltage fuel cells (2017)
Journal Article
Goodwin, S., & Walsh, D. A. (2017). Closed bipolar electrodes for spatial separation of H2 and O2 evolution during water electrolysis and the development of high-voltage fuel cells. ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces, doi:10.1021/acsami.7b04226. ISSN 1944-8244

Electrolytic water splitting could potentially provide clean H2 for a future ‘Hydrogen Economy.’ However, as H2 and O2 are produced in close proximity to each other in water electrolysers, mixing of the gases can occur during electrolysis, with pote... Read More
