Fuel Cell Products: Components, Fuel Cell Catalysts, and Base Metal Catalysts - Alfa Aesar

Fuel Cell Products

Johnson Matthey has dedicated many years to developing fuel cell technology and continues to make significant investments in its fuel cell business. Consequently, Johnson Matthey Fuel Cells (JMFC) is a world leader in the design and fabrication of catalysts, catalytic components and subsystems for fuel cell applications. With a foundation of more than 50 years in research, development and manufacturing, our focus is on low temperature fuel cell components, notably Proton Exchange Membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) and Direct Methanol Fuel Cells (DMFC).

JMFC’s HiSPEC catalysts consist of single and bimetallic, highly dispersed supported and unsupported catalysts used on anodes and cathodes in PEMFC and DMFC. HiSPEC catalysts are highly active and are designed and manufactured to the highest quality standards for maximum performance and durability. Products are available in several precious metal loadings and on a range of carbon supports. Large production volumes are commercially available.

Alfa Aesar is proud to offer a our line of HiFUEL base metal fuel processing catalysts, which complements the HiSPEC catalyst products.

A full line of fuel cell components is available from Alfa Aesar. Products types include:

  • Nafion membranes
  • Toray Carbon paper
  • Cathodes and anodes for Hydrogen, DMFC and Reformate fuel cells
  • MEAs for Hydrogen, DMFC and Reformate fuel cells
