Carbon Nanotubes Go Back Inside Fuel Cells

Carbon Nanotubes Go Back Inside Fuel Cells

Researchers have tried to apply carbon nanotubes to fuel cells for some time now. At first there was hope that carbon nanotubes would help fuel cells better store hydrogen. That dream was dashed and then later resurrected . There has also been the idea that carbon nanotubes could be used as a cheaper alternative to expensive catalysts within fuel cells . I suppose those are worthy areas of pursuit, but the two main issues that have prevented fuel cells from gaining wider adoption—at least in the area of powering automobiles—are the costs of isolating hydrogen and building an infrastructure that would deliver that hydrogen to the automobiles. The issue of isolating hydrogen has taken precedence of late in nanotech/fuel cell research both at the commercial level and at research labs . But now researchers from Stanford University are again looking at how carbon nanotubes coul...
