An article in Nanowerk on “highly-durable biomimetic nanotrough electrodes developed for proton exchange membrane fuel cells” cites a study in collaboration with engineering professor Gang Wu.
“Membrane electrode assembly is the core part of proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs),” according to the article. “However, the high consumption of platinum and poor durability of carbon supported platinum nanoparticles (Pt/C) in the conventional cathode prohibit the large-scale commercialization of fuel cell vehicles.”
The paper, titled "Free-standing and ionomer-free 3D platinum nanotrough fiber network electrode for proton exchange membrane fuel cells," was published in Applied Catalysis B: Environmental
