As the impact of the overdependence on fossil fuels becomes more apparent on gradual climate changes and the deterioration of the environment, the search for clean, efficient and safer energy sources is becoming increasingly important. The impetus for this project came from the need to develop low-carbon or decarbonised energy sources. This study unveils nanoporous gold as a remarkably efficient anode catalyst for a direct borohydride fuel cell.
