Title: Novel Ru-Ni-S Electrode Catalyst for PEMFC
Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell" is the most promising fuel cell technology for automotive and portable power applications but the performance and stability of these fuel cells are very sensitive to trace impurities in the fuel. This research project is exploring the possibility of replacing the current fuel cell catalyst with an alternative that enables the fuel cell to be fed with fuels that are high in impurities.
