Brookhaven Lab Chemists Receive Patents for Fuel-Cell Catalysts

New catalysts reduce costly platinum use and increase its effectiveness in fuel cells

May 20, 2010

UPTON, NY — Chemists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory have received three patents for developing catalysts to accelerate chemical reactions in fuel cells. The newly patented catalysts, as well as a method for making a particular type of catalyst with a thin layer of platinum, could greatly reduce the cost and increase the use of fuel cells in electric vehicles. The catalysts and the technique are available for licensing.
