USA: Brookhaven sells license to nanoparticle electrocatalyst technology for fuel cells in electric vehicles

(Nanowerk News) N.E. Chemcat Corporation, Japan’s leading catalyst and precious metal compound manufacturer, and a member of the BASF group, one of the world’s leading chemical companies, has licensed electrocatalysts developed by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory that can reduce the use of costly platinum and increase the effectiveness of fuel cells for use in electric vehicles. In addition, the license includes innovative methods for making the catalysts and an apparatus design used in manufacturing them.

Platinum is the most efficient electrocatalyst for fuel cells, but platinum-based catalysts are expensive, unstable, and have low durability. The newly licensed electrocatalysts have high activity, stability, and durability, while containing only about one tenth the platinum of conventional catalysts used in fuel cells, reducing overall costs.
