Time-Dependent ("Mechanical"), Nonbiological Catalysis. 3. A Readily Prepared, Convergent, Oxygen-Reduction Electrocatalyst

Chapter


Abstract


  • The development of oxygen reduction catalysts for application in H2/O2 fuel cells

    has attracted considerable recent interest [1]. This interest can be attributed to a

    growing recognition that such cells offer a potential alternative, nonpolluting

    power source, especially in transportation applications, where their high-power

    densities allow them to compete with the internal combustion engine. H2/O2 fuel

    cells are currently used in buses and various other public transportation vehicles in

    several cities around the world [2]. Efforts are being made to extend their utility to

    automobiles. Finding efficient and, more importantly, economical dioxygen

    reduction catalysts is a significant part of this effort. Much work has focused on

    the development of new, inexpensive, non-noble metal electrocatalysts.
