Meeting Energy & Environmental Challenges Through Functional Materials

Topical Symposia - Electrocatalysis

Shouzhong Zou and Yurily Tolmachev
Fuel cells are efficient energy conversion devices. In order to make fuel cell technology viable in daily life, several technical challenges need to be overcome.  In this sub-symposium, a subset of these challenges will be discussed. Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to: durability of fuel cells, Pt loading reduction of fuel cell catalysts, new catalysts, and applications of spectroscopic methods to fuel cell problems.
