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,…
