Oxygen reduction on platinum

Abstract:

Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells have the potential to provide a clean and convenient source of power for applications such as vehicle transport. At their heart lies a platinum catalyst which is used to reduce oxygen to water. Although platinum is expensive it is the best elemental catalyst for the reaction. In order to make better use of the platinum and reduce production costs, nanoparticulate platinum is dispersed onto a carbon support. This results in a greater surface area pe...
