Solid - Phase Synthesis of Carbon Nanoparticles and their Application to Direct Methanol Fuel Cell
Carbon nanoparticles were prepared by simple method. TEM image shows that the particle size is several nanometers. Furthermore, the specific surface area of the material is reached for 425.8 m2/g. It is much larger than that of carbonVulcan-XC72, which they is widely used as catalyst supports for DMFC electrodes. Carbon nanoparticles is a kind of promising material used for catalyst support in DMFC.
