High-Entropy Alloy for High-Performance Ethanol Fuel Cells

  • High-entropy alloy catalyst for improving direct ethanol fuel cell performance
  • Method resulted in outstanding fuel cell performance (0.7-0.8 W/cm2)
  • Applicable to portable power supplies, electric vehicles

Abstract
The University of Central Florida invention is a method for producing a high-entropy alloy catalyst for high-performance, direct ethanol fuel cells. By rationally selecting the proper elements and placing them into high-entropy alloys, researchers were able to achieve outstanding direct ethanol fuel cell performance (0.7-0.8 W/cm2), which is the best catalyst developed for ethanol fuel cells.
