  •  EDELKAT - A toolbox for optimized electrocatalysts           Bildergebnis für BMBF              

BMBF NanoMatFutur project (Jan. 2014 - Dez. 2019)

In this project we develop novel nanostructured electrocatalysts, in which the catalytically active components (e.g. platinum or noble metal nanoparticles) are stabilized against electrochemical sintering.

In this context, we particularly focus our efforts on yolk@shell structures.

We thereby developp novel atom efficient and one-pot synthetic routes towards yolk@shell nanostructures and investigate their applicability in electrocatalysis and in particular in fuel cell relevant  reactions.

  •  BMBF HT-Linked project (Jan. 2015 - July 2020)                       Bildergebnis für BMBF

In this project we develop novel Pt/C electrocatalysts for HT-PEM fuel cells based on 3D porous nitrogen doped carbon supports with improved long-term stability.
