Next-generation Fuel Cells and Biofuel Cells
 
In the midst of ongoing depletion of fossil fuels, hydrogen has been focused on as a next-generation energy source. The fuel cell which uses hydrogen as an energy (electron) source is expected to be an effective way for solving such resources issues. However, platinum with limited reserve is being used at present as electrode catalyst for fuel cells, and thus development of new electrodes catalysts is urgently required as an alternative to platinum. Our laboratory is working on development and evaluation of next-generation fuel cells operable platinum-free in water, at room temperatures and normal pressure. We are also developing biofuel cells through use of highly active and stable hydrogenase.
