Elisabeth Frömsdorf

Master Student

I am a master student at Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg and I am joining the group for my master thesis. I will focus on the discrepancies between aqueous model systems (AMS) and membrane electrode assemblies (MEA) in proton exchange membrane water electrolyzer (PEMWE) with iridium-based catalysts for oxygen evolution reaction (OER). To do so, I will investigate the pH dependence of stability and activity of iridium oxide catalysts using a scanning flow cell (SFC) coupled with an online inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS).
