Understanding and Tailoring Metal-Support Interactions in Heterogeneous Catalysts

Platinum is an archetypical catalyst used for a variety of applications, including fuel cells, electrolyzers, and processes involved in the production of renewable chemicals. Unfortunately, the use of platinum as a catalyst is cost prohibitive. A variety of options is available to mitigate the cost, one of which includes synthesizing high surface area platinum catalyst. Most often, the catalysts synthesized for fuel cells and electrolyzers consist of platinum deposited on a high surface area carbon support.
