Experimental Design and Multi-Scale Modeling of Self-Assembled Nanostructures for Hydrogen Generation and Utilization

Work on this project was already in progress due to previously funded research projects that required the development of similar capabilities. The goal of this project was to develop a nano-structured catalyst material used in the reaction bed of a rocket booster. The rocket booster is to be used to reposition the nano-satellites once in orbit around the earth. The catalyst material that was chosen was RuO2, principally due to encouraging results obtained in previous research recognizing it as an excellent catalyst material for the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide.
