1.1 Introduction

Renewable and clean energy conversion and storage devices are imperative to continuous energy consumption and environmental protection. At the heart of these energy conversion/storage devices, such as fuel cells, metal–air batteries, and water splitting, there are key electrochemical reactions, oxygen reduction reaction (ORR), oxygen evolution reaction (OER), and hydrogen evolution reaction (HER), that generate electric power or ...
