Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

72683-The commercialization of polymer electrolyte fuel cells is hindered not only by the high cost of platinum (Pt) electrocatalysts, but also because these catalysts have insufficient activity toward the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). In a PEM fuel cell that uses state-of-the art cathode Pt catalysts, about 80 % of the overall cell losses i...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

72683B03-I Fuel cells for transportation require too much platinum (Pt) to be commercialized. The high Pt loadings are a result of sluggish kinetics for the oxygen reduction reaction. Better catalysts are needed for oxygen reduction if Pt loadings are to be reduced. In this project, high throughput screening methods will be integrated with a...
