Description

Today, the development of active and stable catalysts still represents a challenge to be overcome in
the research field of low-temperature fuel cells. Operation at low temperatures offers great advantages, such as quick start-up and longer stability, but demands the utilization of highly active catalysts to reduce the activation energy of the electrochemical reactions involved in the electrodes, and thus obtain practical performances and high efficiencies. At present, the best-performing catalysts in low-temperature fuel cells are based on highly-dispersed Pt nanoparticles [1]. However, these present several drawbacks, such as high cost, limited earth resources, sensitivity to contaminants, low tolerance to the presence of alcohols, and instability due to carbon support electrochemical oxidation and Pt dissolution [2–4].
