Abstract

Electrode catalysts of polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs) are developed using carbon nanofibers acting as catalyst supports or electrode fillers. In-situ colloidal impregnation enables to prepare highly-dispersed Pt electrode catalysts of a few nm in diameter on carbon black and carbon nanofibers including nanotubes. The addition of carbon fibers, forming continuous networks for electronic transport and forming open pore channels for gas transport, improves I-V characteristics of PEFCs.
