Mystery surrounding non-platinum catalysts for fuel cell technologies solved

A persistent mystery surrounding the structure of nitrogen-doped carbon catalysts has been solved, say researchers, with potential for a range of fuel cell technologies. Constructing and testing a number of model catalysts allowed the researchers to clarify the active site as being the carbon atom attached to pyridinic nitrogens in the material. These developments open the door for optimization studies looking to accelerate gains in catalyst performance.
