Associated to the scholarship:12/09109-2 - Electrocatalysis of the hydrogen oxidation reaction and sodium borohydride on dispersed catalysts formed by AB5-type metal hydride alloys, BP.DD


In this work it will be conducted activities of research and development of electrocatalysts formed Pt and/or Pd nanoparticles supported on a metal hydride alloys, for ultimate use on alkaline fuel cell anodes. The aim is to develop a product presenting hydrogen storage capacity, in the form of hydride, by exposition to gaseous hydrogen or sodium borohydride, and whose anodic process being either the molecular hydrogen oxidation and the absorbed hydride oxidation.
