Platinum nanoparticles for fuel-cell catalysts may cut cost
- Magazine Article
Fuel-cell technology is a big subject with some very small but vital aspects, one of which is the size of platinum atoms. Reduce these and the cost of platinum-one of the major drawbacks of current fuel-cell systems-would also fall. So, establishing and creating the optimum size for platinum fuel-cell catalysis for cars and heavy-duty trucks is one of the ongoing research areas for future alternative energy solutions.
