Abstract
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is for the development of platinum catalysts for hydrogen/air proton-exchange membrane fuel cells. The proposed catalysts will be more active than the current catalysts. The goal is to develop advanced fuel cell catalysts that are sufficiently active to meet DOE's goal for precious metal loading for fuel cells. More active Platinum catalysts will help commercialize hydrogen/air proton-exchange membrane fuel cells for vehicle and low- to medium-power generator applications. Fuel cell manufacturers and users will benefit greatly if the proposed research becomes successful.
