Professor gets grant from Honda

Abstract:
Chemistry professor Chuck Lukehart accepted a $50,000 grant from Honda to fund breakthrough enhancements in fuel cell technology.

"We plan to enhance performance by making more highly reactive electro-catalyst materials. These catalysts are platinum metal or platinum metal alloy nanocrystals. The reactivity of these metal nanocrystals is expected to depend on their three-dimensional shape, such as nano-cubes or nano-tetrahedra. By discovering how to prepare shape-specific metal nanocrystals, we hope to achieve enhanced fuel cell performance," Lukehart said.
