Article title

Hydrogen evolution reaction at Ru-modified nickel-coated carbon fibre in 0.1 M NaOH


Title variants

Languages of publication



The electrochemical activity towards hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) was studied on commercially available (Toho-Tenax) and Ru-modified nickel-coated carbon fibre (NiCCF) materials. Quality and extent of Ru electrodeposition on NiCCF tows were examined by means of scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Kinetics of the hydrogen evolution reaction were investigated at room temperature, as well as over the temperature range: 20-50°C in 0.1 M NaOH solution for the cathodic overpotential range: -100 to -300 mV vs. RHE. Corresponding values of charge-transfer resistance, exchange current-density for the HER and other electrochemical parameters for the examined fibre tow composites were recorded.
