Nitrogen-doped carbon nanotubes as effective in fuel cell catalysis as platinum, ruthenium and other noble metals
05 November, 2012
Fuel cells based on hydrogen and oxygen can convert stored chemical energy into electrical energy in an environmentally friendly way, as the by-product is simply water. As a replacement for scarece and expensive noble metals, organic materials, are now under the spotlight. Physicists at Umeå University in Sweden have deliberately introduced defects into carbon nanotubes to create the necessary properties.
