It has been recognized that the success of fuel cell technology depends largely on two key materials: the membrane and the electro catalyst. These two key materials are also directly linked to the major challenges faced in DMFCs, including (1) methanol crossover which can only be overcome by developing new membrane; (2) slow anode kinetics which can only be overcome by developing new anode catalysts. With regards to new DMFC anode catalysts, there are two major challenges, namely, the performance, including activity, reliability and durability, and cost reduction.
