Catalyst preparation by combustion synthesis for electrochemical hydrocarbon devices


Metals and ceramics can behave as active electrocatalyst materials, particularly in hydrocarbon oxidation in anodic reaction fuel cells. Combustion synthesis is a very reliable, fruitful and rapid synthesis method to produce metals, ceramics and cermets with low particle size and high specific surface area. This work describes the preparation of nanoparticle Pt/Ru alloys, ceramic perovskites such as Sm0.95CoO3-delta, and Sm0.95CoO3-delta/Pt cermets, and shows how promising these materials can be in the role of electrochemically active materials.
