New catalyst may hasten commercialization of fuel cell vehiclesAugust 25, 2015

Supported by DOE’s Fuel Cell Technologies Office, scientists at Argonne have developed a new fuel cell catalyst using earthly abundant materials with performance that is comparable to platinum in laboratory tests. If commercially viable, the new catalyst could replace platinum in electric cars powered by fuel cells instead of batteries, which would greatly extend the range of electric vehicles and eliminate the need for recharging.

JumpStart: Named Fellowships

Postdoctoral Program Lead Tina Henne presents "Named Fellowships" at the next JumpStart meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 2, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m., Bistro 213, Rm. A/B.

All are welcome to attend and bring their lunches. There is no cost or registration required.

Abstract
