Researchers working on developing new fuel cells have published a novel method to fabricate highly active gold nanoparticle catalysts. The team adopted methods it had already proven with platinum, and a polymer was wrapped around graphene to create an ideal support structure for the nanoparticles. The catalysts showed best-in-class results in what may become a breakthrough technology for the key catalytic reaction in fuel cells.
