Novel catalyst materials for the cathode side of meas suitable for transportation applications

Novel low temperature fuel cell (FC) cathode catalyst and support systems will be designed and synthesized. The focus will be on highly active catalyst materials for polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) for transportation applications.
These materials will be fully characterized, benchmarked and validated with a multi-scale bottom up approach in order to significantly reduce the amount of precious metal catalyst loadings (Topic:SP1-JTI-FCH.2011.1.5 Next generation European MEAs for transportation applications (80%), and SP1-JTI-FCH.2011.1.6 Investigation of degradation phenomena (20%)
