Chemistry Department Colloquium

"Synthesis and Study of Nanostructured Electrocatalysts for Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells"

Presented by Dr. Fabio Lima, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil

Monday, October 17, 2011, 11:00 am — Hamilton Seminar Room, Bldg. 555

This talk, will be presented by some recent developments of high active electrocatalysis for electrochemical reactions that take place in fuel cells. We will focus on the ethanol and borohydride electro-oxidation, and on the oxygen reduction for proton and anion exchange membrane fuel cells. It will be shown their electrocatalytic activities and reaction products distribution, which were followed by on line mass spectrometry.
