Defective Graphene Makes Efficient Fuel Cell PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 18 March 2015
Graphene is a miracle material that was just recently discovered, and it looks like this particular material has more functionality that previously thought. And just like some mad scientists who have failed in their experiments, it looks like one of these failed exploits have produced some unprecedented results for the super material – super-efficient fuel cells.

Scientists from Northwestern University and other institutions were toying with this particular super material recently, and it looks like they have discovered that imperfect graphene makes a good hydrogen fuel cell membrane. Knocking off four carbon atoms from its normal structure made graphene perform better, and best of al vastly cheaper too. The imperfection allows protons to slip through the material in just a few seconds, which efficiently generate electricity in the process.
