Fujitsu Laboratories Develops New FC Material Technology.
According to Fujitsu Laboratories, the technology comprises an aromatic hydrocarbon solid electrolyte material covered with a high density of highly active platinum-based nano-particle catalyst with methanol blocking properties, which works to "[reduce] the total [membrane electrode assembly (MEA)] methanol crossover effect to one-tenth that encountered with typical fluorinated polymers."
Fujitsu Laboratories noted that the new technology allows for "much higher power capacities for passive micro [FCs] and realizes longer runtimes for mobile devices...."
