The objective of the project was to create new nanostructural catalytic systems capable of effective electroreduction of oxygen, which can be used in the construction of low-temperature fuel cells. Carrying out the project included the preparation of hybrid systems consisting of nanoparticles of gold, silver and platinum immobilized on a well-conducting layers composed of carbon nanostructures, red-ox mediators improving charge transfer. The next part of the project involved the characteristics of created systems using microscopic, spectroscopic and electrochemical methods.
