Scientists develop new material for longer-lasting fuel cells

23 July 2020

In the study, published today in the journal Nanoscale,¬†researchers produced graphene via a special, scalable technique and used it to develop hydrogen fuel cell catalysts. They showed that this new type of graphene-based catalyst was more durable than commercially available catalysts and matched their performance.¬† Hydrogen fuel cells convert … [more]
