In this article an overview of our research in the field of nanoelectrocatalysis, in particular electrocatalytic energy conversion, is presented. Our research comprises the areas of catalyst preparation as well as performance evaluation of model and applied electrocatalysts with respect to activity, selectivity, and stability. Our aim is to understand the fundamental properties that determine the performance of electrocatalysts for particular processes and to build a bridge between fundamental research and realistic applications. In our research we prepare catalyst materials, study the interface between the catalyst and the electrochemical environment, i.e. the solid–liquid interface, and perform kinetic measurements. Furthermore, such research relies to a large extent on material characterization techniques as well as the development and application of advanced experimental setups.
