European Research Team Create Nano-Material Ideal for Fuel Cells
Oxy-carbide nanotubes hold high electrical connectivity
A research team from the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany and the University Turku, Finland have been able to “borrow” conductivity generated from carbon and embeds it into a titanium compound. By utilizing the process of carbonisation, the researchers have created nanotubes with high electrical conductivity and excellent electrochemical properties. They believe the novel semi-metallic material would be ideal for fuel cells to improve performance and durability.
