electrochemical interface is widely considered as one of the most complex and
least understood places in chemical systems. Yet, it plays a critical role in
numerous scientific and technological processes, including electrocatalysis,
energy conversion, and energy storage. Prof. Bo Zhang’s laboratory has been
interested in developing and using highly sensitive and highly resolving (both
spatially and temporally) analytical methods to better understand the dynamic
nature of the electrochemical interface. In this presention, Prof. Zhang focuses
on recent research in applying the method of single-molecule and
super-resolution fluorescence microscopy to study the nucleation, growth, and
dissolution of hydrogen nanobubbles on an electrode surface. He will describe
how to extract useful information about the potential-dependent bubble size,
rate of nucleation, and the spatial distribution. Prof. Zhang will discuss what
can be learned from the transient adsorption and desorption behavior of single
fluorophores on the gas/water interface. He will also demonstrate how to use
this method to characterize electrocatalytic nanomaterials and the possibility
of observing the “hydrogen spillover” effect in an aqueous phase.
