University of Tokyo researchers used platinum (Pt) and aluminum compounds to create a catalyst which enables certain chemical reactions to occur more efficiently than ever before. The catalyst could significantly reduce energy usage in various industrial and pharmaceutical processes. It also allows for a wider range of sustainable sources to feed the processes, which could […]

Korea’s Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) researchers presented a new strategy for enhancing catalytic activity using tungsten suboxide as a single-atom catalyst (SAC). This strategy, which significantly improves hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) in the metal platinum (pt) by 16.3 times, sheds light on the development of new electrochemical catalyst technologies. The research group’s […]

Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have developed a new platinum-based catalytic system that is far more durable than traditional commercial systems and has a potentially longer lifespan. The new system could, over the long term, reduce the cost of producing fuel cells. Platinum has long been used as a catalyst to enable the oxidation reduction […]

An interdisciplinary research team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has built platinum nanoparticles for catalysis in fuel cells: The new size-optimized catalysts are twice as good as the best process commercially available today. Fuel cells might well replace batteries as the power source for electric cars. They consume hydrogen, a gas which could […]

Purdue University researchers produce a fuel cell with a new method increasing the fuel cell electrode activity at least tenfold and using 90 percent less platinum. Electric vehicles running on fuel cells tout zero emissions and higher efficiency, but expensive platinum is holding them back from entering a larger market. The 2019 Toyota Mirai electric […]
