Tsuyohiko Fujigaya and Naotoshi Nakashima Fuel Cell Electrocatalyst Using Polybenzimidazole-Modified Carbon Nanotubes As Support Materials Advanced Materials 25
Polybenzimidazoles can non-covalently wrap onto the surface of carbon nanotube to introduce binding sites for the loading of Pt nanoparticles. This approach is advantageous as it helps keep the carbon nanotube structure intact and to form a triple phase boundary structure, both of which are required for electrocatalyst for fuel cells. The developed electrocatalyst is applicable both for proton-exchange and anion-exchange fuel cells.
