Nanostructuration of core materials for fuel cells and water electrolysis

The main activities of the group entail the development of novel electrolyte and electrode materials for proton/anion exchange membrane fuel cells and electrolysers. As an example, we are preparing and characterising nanostructured electrocatalyst supports (based on carbon, metal oxides and carbide nanofibres), a range of low loaded PGM catalysts (Pt and IrO2 nanoparticles and thin films, Pt/Rare Earth Metal nanoalloys) and ionomer membranes reinforced with polymer fibre webs.
