The Energy Race and the search for commodity catalyst materials

By Eileen De Guire / June 14, 2011

Illustration of the way the electronic configuration of metal ions can control the activity of metal oxides for oxygen reduction, varying it by a factor of at least 10,000 times. This can serve as a design principle (symbolized as a “volcano plot”) to screen metal oxide candidates and accelerate the development of efficient fuel cells,…

Strontium-doped perovskite-based catalytic converters offer cheaper alternative to platinum for diesel, gas exhaust

By / April 9, 2010

According to a new paper in Science, a team from GM’s Global R&D operations may have found a significantly less expensive way to treat vehicle exhaust via a catalytic converter that uses a strontium-doped perovskite instead of costly platinum-based catalyst. For some context, it’s important to know that while newer diesel engines have attained or…
