submitted on 30.01.2020 and posted on 31.01.2020 by Jaecheol Choi, Hoang-Long Du, Manjunath Chatti, Bryan H. R. Suryanto, Alexandr Simonov, Douglas Macfarlane
We demonstrate that bismuth exhibits no measurable electrocatalytic activity for the nitrogen reduction reaction to ammonia in aqueous electrolyte solutions, contrary to several recent reports on the highly impressive rates of Bi-catalysed electrosynthesis of NH3 from N2.
