Very recently, several nonnoble functional heterojunction-like-structured electrocatalysts, including metal/metal oxide/ carbon hybrids [7,8], transition-metal sulfides [9], and nitrides [5], have been reported to exhibit outstanding catalytic activities for HER On these heterojunction-like-structured interfaces, positively-charged metal ion species could preferentially serve as an adsorption site for O[H.sup.-] (generated by [H.sub.2]O splitting) due to the strong electrostatic affinity between each other, while a nearby metal or anion ion site would be kinetically beneficial for the adsorption of H.
In light of the above, a thought stimulates us to investigate whether the nonnoble metal of Cu could promote the catalytic performance of Pt for the hydrogenation of cinnamaldehyde.
The broader burgher class included all lay, nonnoble city dwellers, among them artisans and laborers.
Consequently, a significant effort has been made in order to explore eco-friendly and low cost catalysts such as nonnoble metals like copper [32-34], cobalt [35-37], nickel [38-40], iron [41, 42], vanadium [43], silver [44], chromium [45,46], molybdenum [47,48], rhenium [49], and zinc [50-52] for aerobic oxidation of alcohols.
However, use of such materials inhibits the use of nonnoble metals that are readily available with less cost.
Here, O's analysis would have been strengthened by a more complex idea of the the noble class(es), rather than proceeding as though there were two monolithic social blocs, nobles and nonnoble servants, when in households of the highest nobility and royalty, those who served were often lesser nobles.
Recently, several studies related to HCHO removal at low temperature have been carried out using supported noble metal (Pt, Rh, Au, and Pd) [6, 7,13,14] and nonnoble metal catalysts [15, 16].
(And, as a disclaimer, I do not pretend that this begins to address issues of privilege in anything like the way it's being done elsewhere.) I will first use a historical approach to demonstrate that the trouble Gesualdo causes to the category of nobleman stems not from the act of composition but rather from his competitiveness with regard to nonnoble composers.
But it is a love based on a mutual blind spot: his "punctum caecum" is her snobbery, which he keeps hoping does not really exist; and hers is his nonnoble rank, which she allows herself to deny.
(49.) Unlike the episcopate in Catholic continental Europe, the Henrician episcopate was comprised of nobles without royal ties and at least thirty percent from "socially minded nonnoble classes." See Andrew A.
The nonnoble laity were to obey their kings and bishops and gain merit by their obedience in the estate they had been allotted.
Another aspect of the acid and alkaline work is development of electrodes with nonnoble metal catalysts, which, if substituted, would help reduce cell costs significantly.
