Mediated Hydrogen Anode for Use in Reductive Electrosynthesis
Inventors: Shannon Stahl, Jack Twilton, James Gerken, Mathew Johnson, Thatcher Root
The inventor discloses a new method and system for reductive electrochemical synthesis that uses H2 as the terminal reductant. Essentially, this invention will enable H2-integrated anodes and flow-reactor technology for reductive electrosynthesis. The invention, including potential classes of H2 mediators, is summarized in the figure linked below.
- Eliminates need for "sacrificial" anode
- Provides means to "supercharge" hydrogen as a stronger reductant
