A Pohang University of Science & Technology research team revealed the phase transition and metal ex-solution phenomena to increase the catalytic activity in fuel cells. Fuel cells, which are attracting attention as an eco-friendly energy source, obtain electricity and heat simultaneously through the reverse reaction of water electrolysis. So, the catalyst that enhances the reaction […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Incheon National University scientists encapsulated a methanol fuel cell catalyst in a protective molecular sieve that selectively prevents undesired reactions. Direct methanol fuel cells (DMFCs), which produce electricity using methanol, will be an alternative solution in the transition away from fossil fuels and toward a ‘hydrogen’ economy. However, undesired methanol oxidation on the cathode […]

University of Bath scientists have discovered a way to generate electricity from nylon – the stretchy fabric used widely in sportswear and other shape-hugging apparel – raising hopes that our clothes will become an important source of energy. The scientists have found a way to produce nylon fibers that are smart enough to produce electricity […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Argonne National Lab scientists have made a pivotal discovery that could extend the lifetime of fuel cells that power electric vehicles by eliminating the dissolution of platinum catalysts. Vehicles powered by polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) are energy-efficient and eco-friendly, but despite increasing public interest in PEMFC-powered transportation, current performance of materials that […]

University of Bern has led an international research team that has succeeded in developing an electrocatalyst for hydrogen fuel cells which, in contrast to the catalysts commonly used today, does not require a carbon carrier and is therefore much more stable. The new process is industrially applicable and can be used to further optimize fuel […]
