Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a novel fuel cell heterogeneous catalyst based on rhodium, nickel and sulfur with power densities 5-28% that of platinum. The NiRhS heterogeneous catalyst was developedviaa homogeneous model complex of the [NiFe]hydrogenases (H2ases) and can act as both the cathode and anode of a fuel cell.
