Fuel cells have attracted much research interest as they are promising candidates for providing clean energy. A fuel cell catalyzes reactions between a fuel (e.g., hydrogen or alcohols) at the anode and the oxidant (molecular oxygen) at the cathode, converting chemical energy into electrical power. One of the most critical challenges for fuel-cell applications is the sluggish reduction kinetics of the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) at the cathode. So far, platinum and Ptbased nanomaterials are… CONTINUE READING
