Why are nanofibers used in fuel cells?

Nanofibers have shown significant potential in improving the performance and efficiency of fuel cells, which are electrochemical devices that convert chemical energy into electrical energy. The unique properties of nanofibers, such as their high surface area, porosity, and conductivity, make them valuable components in various parts of fuel cells. The utilization of nanofibers in fuel cells paves the way for the development of more efficient and sustainable energy conversion technologies.

High Surface Area

Nanofiber applications for fuel cell - high surface area

Nanofibers have a high surface area-to-volume ratio, providing a larger interface for catalytic reactions. This property allows for more active sites for the electrochemical reactions that occur within fuel cells, promoting enhanced efficiency of fuel conversion.

Enhanced Catalyst Utilization
