Congratulations to Bingzhang and Prof. Ping, as well as Feng Wu and Tyler Smart, for their work in collaboration with Prof. Shaowei Chen on carbon nanowires co-doped with ruthenium and nitrogen which has just been published in Nature Communications. This work develops a unique system which has the unprecedented ability to function as an effective hydrogen evolution catalyst in alkaline media and has shown to outperform the prestigious platinum. Due to the high-impact of this work it has been well-received in media, such as a recent article in the UCSC news center.
