A Durable, Cheaper Alternative To Platinum For Hydrogen Fuel Cells Found

The Holy Grail of alternative fuels is the hydrogen fuel cell, a literal zero-emissions vehicle that requires expensive and rare platinum as a reaction catalyst. This makes hydrogen fuel cells incredibly costly, but researchers at Brown University have developed a cheaper and more durable alternative that is the best replacement for platinum yet.
