Nanoalloys ten times as effective as pure platinum in fuel cells

By Chalmers University of Technology. Published on 26 September 2017 in:
News, September 2017, , , ,

A new type of nanocatalyst can result in the long-awaited commercial breakthrough for fuel cell cars. Research results from Chalmers University of Technology and Technical University of Denmark show that it is possible to significantly reduce the need for platinum, a precious and rare metal, by creating a nanoalloy using a new production technique. The technology is also well suited for mass production.
