Organic fuel cells
Organic catalysts might facilitate the development of fuel cells, an essentially nineteenth century technology, into an alternative power system for applications in the twenty-first century. Scientists at Ume? University in Sweden writing in the journal ACS Nano have improved our understanding of how inexpensive organic catalysts, based on nitrogen-doped carbon nanotubes, might displace expensive catalysts based on nobel metals. The team has demonstrated that nitrogen defects can boost local catalytic activity in carbon nanotubes and that heat treatment can improve the activity of these defects still further. The team is also investigating related materials for artificial photosynthesis.
