Abstract:

Limited world-supply and production of platinum group metals restrict the potential use of fuel cells using platinum metal catalysts to small scale, low-volume power sources. Nickel is more abundant, and it is concluded that the development of a fuel cell technology using nickel catalysts depends upon the technology and cost of producing cheap hydrogen from fossil fuels.
