  • Patent number: 11214497
    Abstract: Disclosed are a perovskite compound, a method for producing the perovskite compound, a catalyst for a fuel cell including the perovskite compound, and a method for producing the catalyst. The perovskite compound overcomes the low stability of palladium due to its perovskite structural properties. Therefore, the perovskite compound can be used as a catalyst material for a fuel cell. In addition, the use of palladium in the catalyst instead of expensive platinum leads to an improvement in the price competitiveness of fuel cells. The catalyst is highly durable and catalytically active due to its perovskite structure.

  • Patent number: 11173481
    Abstract: Disclosed are a metal single-atom catalyst and a method for preparing the same. The method uses a minimal amount of chemicals and is thus environmentally friendly compared to conventional chemical and/or physical methods. In addition, the method enables the preparation of a single-atom catalyst in a simple and economical manner without the need for further treatment such as acid treatment or heat treatment. Furthermore, the method is universally applicable to the preparation of single-atom catalysts irrespective of the kinds of metals and supports, unlike conventional methods that suffer from very limited choices of metal materials and supports. Therefore, the method can be widely utilized to prepare various types of metal single-atom catalysts. All metal atoms in the metal single-atom catalyst can participate in catalytic reactions. This optimal atom utilization achieves maximum reactivity per unit mass and can minimize the amount of the metal used, which is very economical.

  • Publication number: 20210159512
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a method for preparing a metal single-atom catalyst for a fuel cell. The method for preparing a metal single-atom catalyst uses a relatively lower amount of chemical substances as compared to the conventional methods and thus is eco-friendly, uses no liquid through the whole process and avoids a need for additional steps for separating and/or washing the catalyst after its synthesis, thereby allowing simplification of the process, and can produce a single-atom catalyst at low cost. In addition, unlike the conventional methods having a limitation in metallic materials, the method can be applied in common regardless of types of metals, and thus is significantly advantageous in that it can be applied widely to obtain various types of metal single-atom catalysts. Further, in the method for preparing a metal single-atom catalyst, metal atoms totally participate in the reaction. Thus, the method can minimize the usage of metal to provide high cost-efficiency.

  • Patent number: 10850270
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for preparing a carbon-supported metal oxide and/or alloy nanoparticle catalyst. According to the method, a carbon-supported metal oxide and/or alloy nanoparticle catalyst is prepared by depositing metal oxide and/or alloy nanoparticles on a water-soluble support and dissolving the metal oxide and/or alloy nanoparticles deposited on the water-soluble support in an anhydrous polar solvent containing carbon dispersed therein to support the metal oxide and/or alloy nanoparticles on the carbon. The anhydrous polar solvent has much lower solubility for the water-soluble support than water and is used to dissolve the water-soluble support.
