Proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) is one of the most promising zero emission power sources. The membrane/electrode assembly (MEA) that constitutes the fuel cell core is composed of a proton conducting membrane coated on each side with catalyst layers where the electrochemical reactions take place. These electrodes exhibit a complex porous nanostructure consisting of carbon black supporting Pt nanoparticles, ensuring electronic conduction and electro-catalysis, and of ionomer for… CONTINUE READING
