Abstract

One major issue still impeding the rapid market introduction of low-temperature polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) is the catalyst's poor long-term stability. In particular in the harsh conditions at the cathode side corrosion of the standard carbon support takes place, and high platinum loadings even speed up this process. Recent research focuses on novel, non-carbon support materials, using either electron-conductive oxides or conductive polymers. In this paper the synthesis and characterization of TiO2-supported Pt, niobium-doped TiO2-supported Pt, Sb-doped tin oxide as well as polyaniline-supported Pt as novel cathode catalysts for PEMFC are presented.
