Canadian Researchers Develop Iron Cataysts for Fuel Cells
6:48 AM MST | January 6, 2010 | Alex Scott
Researchers at the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique, Énergie, Matériaux et Télécommunication (Varennes, PQ) say they are developing fuel cell catalysts based on iron instead of platinum. Commercial fuel cells based on the use of iron catalysts would significantly reduce costs compared with those based on the use of precious and rare metals such as platinum. The shortfalls of using iron-based catalysts until now are that they have been relatively ineffective as a catalyst. This is because iron has a relatively low...
