Abstract

Ammonia is an important chemical feedstock and a clean energy carrier that has a pivotal impact on the sustainable energy circle. Electrocatalytic production of ammonia is evolving into a green alternative to the traditional Haber-Bosch process. A key strategy in enhancing the performance of this electrocatalytic ammonia synthesis is crystal facet engineering of electrocatalysts, which could significantly impact the reaction mechanism, kinetics, and thermodynamics. This review summarizes the recent advancements in crystal facet engineering for electrocatalytic nitrate reduction to ammonia. Through this review, we hope to shed light on the significant role of crystal facet engineering in advancing electrocatalytic ammonia production and to provide useful guidance on the design of high performance electrocatalysts.
