Study Suggests New Criteria For Electrocatalysts
Key factors dictating the energetics of fundamental electrocatalytic reactions, such as the oxygen reduction reaction that takes place in most fuel cells, have gone unnoticed, according to a theoretical investigation by Feng Tian and Alfred B. Anderson of Case Western Reserve University (J. Phys. Chem. C, DOI: 10.1021/jp1100126). The study suggests new criteria for selecting better-performing catalysts for fuel cells and other electrochemical systems. A central problem limiting fuel-cell performance and . . .
