Abstract

original image

Less noble: The Co0.30Au0.35Pd0.35 nanoalloy supported on carbon is reported as a stable, low-cost, and highly efficient catalyst for the CO-free hydrogen generation from formic acid dehydrogenation at room temperature (see picture). The method may strongly encourage the practical application of formic acid as a hydrogen storage material for fuel cells.
