NSF funds catalyst durability study

The National Science Foundation has awarded $300,000 to Georgia Institute of Technology's Tom Fuller to study aging in fuel cell and battery electrodes.

The project will look at how nanostructured catalysts break down over time. Information from the study will help researchers develop new electrode materials and find ways to work around the aging processes. The goal is to develop more durable, and therefore more economical, fuel cells and batteries, particularly for vehicles.
