Novel bimetallic catalysts for use in anion exchange membrane fuel cells
MetadataShow full item record
Widespread implementation of current fuel cell technology is inhibited by the scarcity and price of the catalysts on both the anode and cathode. However, recent research suggests that Alkaline Anion Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (AAEMFC) can operate with earth abundant materials as catalysts due to the rapid reaction kinetics in alkaline environments. This research investigates the electrocatalytic properties of a novel bimetallic catalyst in the oxidation of methanol, ethanol and methane fuels for use in AEM fuel cells.
