    • Abstract


      Direct-ethanol fuel cells (DEFCs) hold a promising future owing to its simple balance of plant operation and potential high-energy density. The significant challenges associated with it is the fuel crossover, which limits its performance and durability. In the present work, Pt–Pd nanocomposites were fused so as to find its impact on the anode design of DEFC. The current paper aimed to address these issues optimally and it also investigated the ethanol crossover by various electrochemical characterization techniques.
