4 Palladium-Based Electrocatalysts for Alcohol Oxidation in Direct Alcohol Fuel Cells

  • C. Bianchini
Part of the Modern Aspects of Electrochemistry book series (MAOE, volume 51)


Palladium is emerging as an attractive replacement for platinum in a number of electrochemical applications, including lowtemperature fuel cells, electrolyzers and sensors. Palladium is more abundant in nature and less expensive than platinum.1 However, cost-associated issues are not the main driving force behind the increasing interest in palladium as it remains a rare noble metal whose introduction for a broad technological use would lead to an irreversible increase in its market price.
