(Figer Presented)No need for nobles: The copper-based metal-organic framework material N,N′-bis(2-hydroxyethyl)dithiooxamidatocopper(II) (see picture, Cu pink, N blue, S yellow, O red, C gray, H white) is an active catalyst for ethanol electrooxidation. The performance of this noble-metalfree material is comparable to those of some reported Pt-based catalysts.
