Webinar: Science Magazine Highlight - Moving Towards Near Zero Platinum Fuel Cells

April 22, 2011

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Fuel Cell Technologies Program is offering a webinar on Monday, April 25, 2011, from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. Eastern titled "Science Magazine Highlight: Moving Towards Near Zero Platinum Fuel Cells." Register now to attend this free webinar.

The most recent issue of Science Magazine features an article by Dr. Piotr Zelenay of Los Alamos National Laboratory highlighting his development of platinum free fuel cell catalysts. During this webinar, Dr. Zelenay will describe his innovative approach and work with a family of non–precious metal catalysts that approach the performance of platinum-based systems at a cost sustainable for high-power fuel cell applications. The approach uses polyaniline as a precursor to a carbon-nitrogen template for high-temperature synthesis of catalysts incorporating iron and cobalt.
