Abstract:All technological systems developed to date that produce or use hydrogen rely on noble metals such as platinum. This project investigates the possibility of using photosensitizers to potentially enhance the catalytic ability of polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells. Different metallic foils measuring 25 nanometers in thickness, containing photo-catalytic properties were layered onto the catalytic carbon base – forming a bimetallic photo-catalytic layer.
