On the influence of the Pt to carbon ratio on the degradation of high surface area carbon supported PEM fuel cell electrocatalysts

Speder, Jozsef; Zana, Alessandro; Spanos, Ioannis; Kirkensgaard, Jacob; Mortensen, Kell; Arenz, Matthias


In the presented work we investigate the influence of the Pt to carbon ratio on the degradation behavior of Pt based proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) catalysts. In order to enable a systematic investigation, we utilized a recently developed colloidal synthesis approach for preparing catalysts with identical Pt nanoparticles (NPs), but varying Pt loadings. Two different commercially available, standard carbon supports were used, Vulcan XC72 and Ketjenblack EC-300. We evaluated the...[Show more]
