UD Prof. Yushan Yan (above) and CBE postdoctoral researcher Teng Wang, along with collaborators from Switzerland, have recently published findings in Nature Materials on a new catalyst that could eliminate the need for precious metals in fuel cells.

UD engineers, international researchers find new catalyst to improve fuel cell materials

May 04, 2022

The research effort led by Wang and Yan, with UD’s Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, and Xile Hu and Weiyan Ni of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), builds on work to move from proton exchange membrane fuel cells to hydroxide exchange membrane fuel cells — research that has been underway in Yan’s lab for nearly 20 years.
