Abstract

original image

Raring to go: Rare earth elements (REs) are very effective in promoting Pd–Au/C catalysts. High-quality hydrogen is evolved from the catalyzed decomposition of formic acid by Pd–Au–REs/C (REs=Dy, Eu, and Ho) catalysts at low temperature. High performance of fuel cell was achieved by using this hydrogen.
