Abstract: As clean energy becomes increasingly important due to climate change and lack of natural resources, energy sources such as fuel cells becomes more compelling. The problem with fuel cells however is the lack of a catalyst that is cost efficient and abundant. The purpose of this project will be to discover potential catalyst candidates with adequate reactivity and conductivity to replace the costly Iridium Oxide and Platinum found in the fuel cells today. The results found in this project are measured with the catalyst’s potential VS time, with multiple current density and time being tested. The result shows that by fabricating alloyed nanostructures, reactivity of nickel foam can be improved, although more analysis and test with different metals and electrolytes should be done before any potential catalyst substitute can be recommended. Further test with extended life cycles should also be done before actual deployment of catalyst due to potential degradation within the life cycles.
