New Publication – ORR catalysis with MnFe2O4 thin films

Our latest collaborative work between Alex Bredar and Miles Blanchet (Comes group) is published in ACS Catalysis! We show that ORR electrocatalysis with spinel MnFe2O4 thin films is quite different than electrocatalysis with MnFe2O4 nanocrystals previously published in literature. This is attribute to a low Mn-surface site density where Mn is know to drive ORR catalysis.
