Japan’s NIMS and Southeast University in China to collaborate on fuel cell electro-catalysts and electrodes

Japan’s National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) and Southeast University (SEU) in China recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to collaborate on the design of graphene-based materials as new platinum-free electro-catalysts and for the development of high-quality fuel-cell electrodes.

A key researcher on the SEU side is Prof. Yuanjian Zhang, who spent some years in NIMS as a young scientist. Prof. Zhang will try to design unique molecular structures of electrodes while the NIMS researchers will examine the performance of the electrodes and fuel cell devices.

Located in Nanjing, SEU is one of the oldest institutions of high education and scientific research in China. Its origin can be traced back to 1902.

Since NIMS is located in Tsukuba City, Tsukuba University will also join this international collaboration team.
