A novel ultra-thin catalyst layer based on wheat ear-like catalysts for polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells

Author affiliations

Abstract

Wheat ear-like catalysts were prepared on Co–OH–CO3 nanowires to design an ultra-thin catalyst layer (UTCL). Without any ionomers, the UTCL exhibited a maximum power density of 481 mW cm−2 at an ultra-low Pt loading of 43 μg cm−2Pt, resulting in a relatively high Pt utilization of 11.2 kW g−1Pt. It is expected that the nanostructured thin film materials will lead to further technological advancements in fuel cells and other applications.
