Challenges and Perspectives of Nanocatalysts in Alcohol-Fuelled Direct Oxidation Fuel Cells

In fuel cells, Pt is still the most commonly used catalyst for both anode oxidation and cathode oxygen reduction reactions. For the anode oxidation reaction, the poisoning intermediate species (e.g. CO) from incomplete oxidation of alcohols still poses a great challenge for Pt-based catalysts. At th...
