2020 Charles Hatchett Award Winners Announced

MMM Hub Co-PI Elton Santos from Queen's University Belfast has been announced as one of the winners of the 2020 Charles Hatchett Award for his work on the paper "Ultrahigh-current-density niobium disulphide catalysts for hydrogen evolution", published in Nature Materials, 18 (2019), 1309-1314.  The award winning research was carried out utilising Thomas, the High Performance Computer at the Materials and Molecular Modelling Hub (MMM Hub).

For the best paper on the science and technology of niobium-based materials, the 2020 Charles Hatchett winners are Jieun Yang (USA), Abdul Rahman Mohmad (Malaysia), Yan Wang (USA), Raymond Fullon (USA), Xiuju Song (USA/China), Fang Zhao (USA), Ibrahim Bozkurt (USA), Mathias Augustin (UK), Elton J. G. Santos (UK), Hyeon Suk Shin (Republic of Korea), Wenjing Zhang (China), Damien Voiry (France), Hu Young Jeong (Republic of Korea) & Manish Chhowalla (UK), for their paper:

‘Ultrahigh-current-density niobium disulphide catalysts for hydrogen evolution’

Nature Materials, 18 (2019), 1309-1314

There is an opportunity to develop new 2D metallic materials for catalysts in industrial water electrolysers, which are important sources of hydrogen for use in zero carbon energy applications.
