Development of N-doped carbon nanomaterials with controlled shape and composition for fundamental studies of electrocatalytic systems based on PGM and PGM-free catalysts
MetadataShow full item record
Renewable energy technologies such as polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) can potentially offset growing energy demands, however challenges such as cost and stability of oxygen reduction catalysts (ORR) remain to be addressed. Some of these challenges can be addressed by development of efficient catalysts and supports. Research has shown that stability of the platinum group metal (PGM) and PGM-free nanoparticle catalysts can be improved by modifying properties of the carbon support with nitrogen dopants. Development of more active and stable PGM-free catalysts such as those based ...
